Fremont Police Officers to Face Investigation

fremont-police(AP) — The city of Fremont says an investigation will be conducted into the police officers who reportedly were at a bar where a teenager drank alcohol and later died in a crash.

Fremont City Attorney Paul Payne tells The Omaha World-Herald ( that city administrators have known about the incident involving the officers since several days after the December 2012 crash that killed 18-year-old Jacob Dickmeyer, of Valley.

That news came a day after a Douglas County jury convicted 20-year-old Amanda Heiman, a former waitress at the bar, of procuring alcohol for a minor resulting in death.

Testimony during her trial indicated, among other things, that four off-duty Fremont officers were in the bar when Dickmeyer was drinking, and that one of the officers bought him a beer.

    Not defending them, but unless they personally knew him, they wouldn’t have necessarily known he was underage if he had already been served and was drinking.. Just the same as I wouldn’t ask to see somebodies ID before I bought them a drink,. By default, he was in the bar drinking, therefore I would assume the bar tender did their job and he was old enough.
