In 2012, Ryan Salisbury lost his job as a Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Deputy after allegations of an altercation in a bar. In the 2012 case, Salisbury got a plea deal that dismissed the charges against him after a period of probation. At the time, they weren’t the first bit of noise regarding Salisbury. The Leelanau County Sheriff’s Department investigated him for domestic violence in 2011, but didn’t make an arrest.
Now, the former Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Deputy is facing new charges of misusing a telecommunications device. There’s one count against him that the 86th District Court entered into its system on May 13, 2019.
It appears that, since his Grand Traverse Sheriff’s Deputy days, Salisbury has found his way to a far more honorable profession.
