Bodycam Shows Officer Found Intoxicated On The Job

Some East Cleveland city leaders and residents are concerned about the accountability of their police force, after finally discovering one of their officers was arrested and convicted for being intoxicated while on the job, back in December 2017.

Concerned resident Justyn Anderson told News 5 he only found about the case after he said Bratenahl Police gave him police body camera video of the arrest of East Cleveland detective Joseph Marche, while Anderson was making a public records request on another issue in July.

Police said Marche was found highly intoxicated and slumped over the wheel of an unmarked city vehicle, while working on a stakeout for the East Cleveland Police Department.

Police report they had to break out two windows to make an arrest, and found a loaded automatic weapon in Marche’s city vehicle.

Anderson and East Cleveland City Councilman Nathaniel Martin said city council or East Cleveland Mayor Brandon King were never notified about the incident.
