As Oregon State Police detectives continued to listen to Albany police officer Michael Hudgins go on about corruption and misconduct in the police department, Hudgins dropped a bombshell. He tells the detectives, "I know when another officer(s), they go down to Vegas (Las Vegas), they openly brag, "Oh, dude, I fingered this girl right in her crotch, sniffed the fingers." Security came in. They looked at the video and the go, "Look, you guys did do it." Everybody knows it at the PD."
What happened is that Officer Dezi Meza was getting married and Meza, and Officers Alex (Buddy) Johnson, Nathan Hull, and Juston Alexander went to Las Vegas for Meza's bachelor party. This was the last weekend of July 2010. They went to the Coyote Ugly club and were watching the dancers. Apparently, this is more like a gentleman's club and not a strip club. Juston Alexander got close to one of the dancers and was able to grab her in the crotch area. The dancer was, understandably, distressed by this and asked security to throw the party out.
Security came in and the group identified themsleves as police officer's and denied assaulting the dancer. They were then taken in the back and shown the video of them, in fact, doing what they were accused of, Alexander assaulting the dancer.
The group then returned to Albany and openly bragged about their Las Vegas exploits to other officer's within the department. At least seven other APD officer's heard them bragging at a party a month or so later.
Back to Hudgins interview, Hudgins states that the Albany police hierarchy was indifferent to the incident, he states, "They were like, Oh well, it happened in another state. Has nothing to do with us."
Hudgins also makes the statement that "Corruption is when the police administration turns a blind eye to criminal activity." I could not have said it better myself.
I have at least two more incident involving Alexander that I am looking into and will report on those when I confirm the information.
