Will the last officer at the jail turn off the lights?

4:30 Update: Houlihan has resigned. Taxpayers are off the hook for this one. As I write this, though, none of the five indicted officers, currently vacationing and awaiting trial, have volunteered to give up their salaries.

Capt. Darin Kelly at the Fayette County Detention Center just refused to divulge any information about an arrest at the facility this morning.

Apparently jail employee Daniel Houlihan was arrested today and charged with promoting contraband first degree. Something about giving methadone to an inmate.

Other than the disturbing silence from the jail, the first question in my mind is will he be placed on administrative leave with pay just like the other troublemakers?
