Trooper says he was demoted after critical comments

(KTRS) – A Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper who spoke out after a handcuffed man drowned at the Lake of the Ozarks last year, says he was demoted for being critical of the department.

Attorney Chet Pleban to the Kansas City Star that his client, Trooper Randy Henry was transferred from the Lake of the Ozarks and demoted from sergeant to corporal. Pleban described Henry as a whistleblower.

The incident in question: a 20-year-old Iowa man was in trooper custody and handcuffed, when he fell off the patrol boat and drowned.

Trooper Henry told Missouri lawmakers that the troopers who sometimes assisted water patrol did not have enough training.
