Fort Wayne sheriff to head to anger management, alcohol abuse classes for shoving teen

The sheriff in Fort Wayne will have to complete both anger management and alcohol abuse classes as part of his sentence for shoving a teenager during a festival back in July.

Allen County Sheriff David Gladieux will enroll in the county’s diversion program that allows people charged with misdemeanors to avoid a conviction on their record.

A special prosecutor yesterday charged the sheriff for shoving a 15-year-old who questioned him during the summer’s Three Rivers Festival.

The sheriff’s lawyer says he was unprofessional that night but is not guilty of a crime.
