A Barton County Sheriff’s Office jailer was fired earlier this week after authorities were called to his residence Saturday night, Barton County Sheriff Greg Armstrong said. However, no charges have been filed.
According to the sheriff, Great Bend Police Department officers and a Great Bend Fire Department ambulance were called to Jason Armbruster’s apartment in the Holiday Apartment complex on West 10th Street. “He was acting erratic and yelling.”
Capt. Bob Robinson of the GBPD said they received a “sick call” and that Armbruster complained of stomach pains. They responded and, when they learned it was a BCSO officer, they turned the matter over to the Sheriff’s Office.
The subject was transported to Great Bend Regional Hospital, admitted, treated and later released. Authorities could not elaborate on what he was treated for.
Armbruster was a detention officer with the BCSO, but, “he is no longer employed here,” Armstrong said. In fact, he is no longer in Kansas. He had only been with the BCSO for a short time.
