Former Osage County Sheriff Makes Plea in Court

The former Osage County Sheriff is pleading guilty to a misdemeanor peace disturbance from an incident last year.

Michael Dixon was in a Boone County Court this week charged with felony weapons charges, being accused of waving a gun around while drunk at a Hartsburg bar in 2016.

According to Boone County Prosecutor Brouck Jacobs proving Dixon was drunk beyond reasonable doubt would have been difficult to do, since there was no blood alcohol level test given at the time.

Dixon will now pay a 500 dollar fine and avoid a jury trial with his guilty plea.
