TABOR CITY, NC (WWAY) - The Tabor City Police Detective who discovered an interview with Allen "Frog" Strickland Sunday night and caused the mistrial today has legal issues of his own.

Det. Greg Sibbett is on administrative leave from the Tabor City Police Department. He's charged with assault by pointing a gun and two counts of illegally arresting two men.

He detained two teenagers outside of the Tabor City jurisdiction. Sibbett says he saw the boys knocking over trash cans with a pick-up truck. He also claims neither had a drivers license. Sibbett denies ever using a gun during the incident, and other officers who responded say they never saw him use a gun, either.

TCPD

I'm glad that the Tabor City Police Department is finally comming to light for how sorry that they are. This is the worst police department that I have ever seen and I live in Tabor City. They worry about giving tickets for petty stuff and let the big time stuff go. They are so SORRY. We need a whole new police department espically a new chief. And, Greg Sibbett should not never be allowed to be a police officer again.

What you said was very

What you said was very interesting. You said they right tickets for petty stuff and let the big stuff go. Big stuff as in what?

Mistrial Cookout at Greg's.

Mistrial Cookout at Greg's. Don could you bring the gasoline and matches. We can roast marsh mellows and evidence.

I would love to go! WHAT

I would love to go! WHAT TIME? Lets not forget to invite the rest of
the TCPD and DEPUTY DOG BELL. Oh yea JEFFREY, dont forget UNCLE RONNIE HE CAN LIGHT THE MATCH. I heard he was good at that!!! AND GUESS WHAT NO ONE WILL NEVER KNOW CAUSE ALL YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH SELECTIVE MEMORY. LMAO :D!!

I'll bring the beer!

I'll bring the beer!

What???

I'm a little confused by all of the Tabor City drama. The Tabor City police respond, without fail, to Mr. Soles residence whenever there is an issue (and there have been plenty!) and that is perfectly okay...even though Soles lives outside of the Tabor City city limits. But, a Tabor City cop busts a couple of kids that aren't "in the jurisdiction" and he gets in trouble for it?

Something smells.

You must not be from TC

You must not be from TC because Mr. Soles' home is right in the city limits...

I'm from TC

And RC lives outside the town limits...every annexation since 1976 has somehow missed including RC's property...imagine that...I live closer to the town limits than RC and have to wait approx. 45 minutes for the Sheriff's Dept. to respond if I need them....h**l, can't even get the TCPD to crack down on speeders on my road much less get any help if needed...bring in the feds to turn this town upside down.

Do-Dum Day...

Uh-Huh!!!

Like none of us saw something retardo like this coming, right???

Tabor City Police officers

This is what makes Tabor City look so ignorant......These pathetic a** police(former)police officers and Stacey Scott. Get a life Greg Sibbett and check your own background!

I agree with the judges

I agree with the judges decision to call it a mistrial because how can anybody in their right mind forget about an interview where you actually videotaped an hour long conversation with someone.I JUST DONT AGREE WITH WASTING TAXPAYERS MONEY BY HAVING ANOTHER TRIAL. AS A COLUMBUS COUNTY CITIZEN AND PROPERTY OWNER WE ARE PAYING HIGH PROPERTY TAXES AND JUST THINK ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY WAS WASTED IN THE LAST WEEK IN CC AND TO HAVE TO RETRY THIS CASE IS INSANE..I HONESTLY FEEL LIKE THE TWO COPS SHOULD BE MADE PAY THE COUNTY FOR THE MONEY THAT WAS WASTED. AND AS FAR AS GREG SIBBETT IS CONCERNED YOU NEED TO QUIT PLAYING COP AND DETECTIVE IN TABOR CITY..AND CHIEF DOWLESS COME ON NOW.. SHED THE HAWAII FIVE O SHIRT YOU WERE STYLING IN COURT AND I WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOUR FAT A** DOING COMMUNITY SERVICE...IT WOULD'NT HURT FOR YOU TO SHED A FEW POUNDS WASHING POLICE CARS OR PICKING TRASH UP BESIDE THE ROAD..ALL YOU DO IS HARASS ALOT OF TRUE LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AND YOU HAVE YOUR STAFF DOING THE SAME. ITS TIME ALOT OF THINGS ARE FINALLY BROUGHT TO LIGHT...OH AND BY THE WAY WHAT IS THE ACTUAL ADRESS WHERE YOU RESIDE.. FOR THE LAST FEW YEARS YOU HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU WERE LIVING IN A HOUSE RENTED FROM BARRY WORLEY.
JUST SO MANY LIES BEING TOLD! YOU GUYS NEED TO SEED GOD AND START PRAYING FOR ONE DAY YOU WILL BE JUDGED BY THE ONE THAT REALLY MATTERS.

Former? Evidently, Tabor

Former?

Evidently, Tabor City Police have a reason for holding on to Greg Sibbett. He is auxillary. Still has access to evidence, blowing orders over the scanner. Hummmm, they have fired other officers for less. What about him being charged for breaking that guys nose that was handcuffed? He must know secrets. Maybe that is why he is being coddled by Chief Dowless.

Fibbett's facing some

Fibbett's facing some serious charges himself. Assault by pointing a gun and two counts of felonius restraint..(pulled a gun on two young boys for knocking a trash can over).It's Public Record. Look it up if you don't belieave it.

That's not all he and his

That's not all he and his co-workers have done.
