Juiced: Cleveland Police officer accused of violating steroid policy

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) – A Cleveland Police officer is facing discipline for violating the department's policy on steroid use.

Aaron Reese is currently on restricted duty and will have a full hearing next week.

19 Action News has uncovered complaints about Reese that apparently got past the city before they hired him. The problems stem from Reese working with Ohio Department of Liquor Control.

19 Action News made the discovery through public records, the same as a private investigator. There's also a YouTube video of a woman signing about everything from steroid use to his sexploits.

Reese's application to become a Cleveland Police officer contains several answers that don't jive with the record.  He denies using steroids, but a sworn deposition obtained shows a former girlfriend swears she shot him up twice a week before gym visits.  In 2008, he was ordered by domestic relations court to have a psychiatric evaluation.  In August, he also stopped making child support payments.

The real questions concern his career with the Department of Liquor Control. His career included being disciplined, something else he denied in his Cleveland Police application. 

But wait, there's more. A convict swears in this affidavit that in 2003, Reese offered him more than $100,000 and to get him out of jail if he would swear that the Arab American owner of a restaurant chain had terrorist ties.

The harassment of the man got so bad that in 2006, the head of Ohio's Department of Public Safety had to write a letter of apology. 

Is this who you want patrolling the streets of Cleveland?
