Jail guard who called in sick busted at local bar
GREENSBURG, Pa. - Calling in sick is going to cost a Pennsylvania jail guard plenty.
Authorities say Westmoreland County senior corrections officer Thomas Gildard was busted in a bar last month, on a day he called in sick to work.
Gildard has been ordered to repay the county for the sick day. He's also going to lose two days' pay and could face additional disciplinary action, depending on how the criminal case turns out.
Gildard is charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. Authorities say he was asked to leave the bar 10 times before police were called.
