Former Jasper cop and wife arrested in Florida

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (WIAT) — A former Jasper Police Officer and his wife are accused of child neglect. Michael and Sarah Butcher are charged with child neglect and loitering. They were arrested after allegedly causing a disturbance at an RV park outside Punta Gorda, florida.

When police arrived, they found the Butchers and their three children living in a truck filled with syringes and old food. This isn’t Michael Butcher’s first run-in with the law. In 2012, he was arrested for drug possession. He resigned from the Jasper Police Department the day before his arrest.
