On March 7, 2022, a supervisor attempted to find available officers to respond to a crash, and found Fackelman at his off-duty job. Additional investigation revealed Fackelman was double-paid for 67 hours.
Fackelman was placed on paid suspension.
The Indiana State Police investigated and submitted their report to the County Prosecutor.
McQuarie and Fackelman were charged with ghost employment, a Level 6 felony, and face six months to 2.5 years in jail. Indiana judges can treat the charge as a misdemeanor, which might not involve jail time if convicted.
