Liberal Police Officer Jailed While On Duty In Hays
12/25/2012

A Liberal police officer remains in the Ellis County Jail after his arrest on a felony warrant out of Oklahoma.

Robert Allen Buchanan, 40, Liberal, was arrested Tuesday during a routine accident investigation, Hays Police Chief Don Scheibler reported Friday.

The accident was reported Tuesday to the Hays Police Department after a vehicle backed into a Liberal Police cruiser in the 200 block of East Seventh.

The existence of the felony warrant out of Beckham County, Okla., was discovered when a HPD officer was making a routine check of the Liberal officer's driver's license.

Buchanan and another officer were in Hays transporting a prisoner.

The warrant stems from an embezzlement case.

The warrant for Buchanan's arrest was filed Jan. 25, 2010, according to court records in Oklahoma.

The warrant was based on an affidavit that was filed by the Elk City Police Department, according to the records.

No statement was given by the Liberal Police Department.

To serve and protect? Wow good job on the background check on this officer. Hard to believe felons arresting people and protecting our community. Hopefully LPD will comment on this situation with this officer. I know your innocent until proven guilty, but really looks like a huge joke to other communities
