I will attempt to summarize in order:
Matt Kohnen met a girl, and began dating her in the city of Swansea. The woman had previously dated a man who is a police officer named Steve Epps in nearby Caseyville. The police officer from Caseyville drove by the Swansea house, and ran the plates of an unknown Munie Greencare Professionals truck, was dissapointed to find no personal information, so he sent a fax to the Munie Greencare corporate office alleging the driver of the truck was driving recklessly, and the officer needed the name of the employee.
The Munie HR department provided Matt with a copy of the Fax, and asked the 15 year worker there what had happened. Not Knowing Matt called the Chief of Police at Caseyville, J.D. Roth who then tried as hard as he could to do the right thing. He first suspended Steve Epps without pay, then J.D. Roth opened an investigation, interviewed the girl, and Matt Kohnen, and Steve Epps.
Epps said in an interview he was just doing his job by sending the fax about the reckless driving.
