Kipp Needham – Grand Traverse Sheriff’s Office – Domestic Violence – 2010

Just another garden variety Grand Traverse Sheriff’s Deputy who thinks the laws only apply to mortals. In this case, a call led the Michigan State Police to Kipp Needham’s home for a domestic violence investigation, where an intoxicated Needham assaulted the officers. Apparently twelve years on the force wasn’t enough to teach Needham better behavior.

Needham eventually pleaded guilty to a reduced charge. The court sentenced Needham to six months in jail.

Sheriff Bensley said that he was “shocked” by Needham’s charges. He also said the charges were a one time occurrence. How many warning signs do we need before we admit GTSO has a culture problem from the top down?

  1. Once again, ACCOUNTABILITY issue cuz there isn’t one. They’ll just wait till they injure or kill someone. PITIFUL!

  2. The individuals that Needham assaulted are lucky he also assaulted a police office or else the victims would have gotten a visit from Scotty Fewins and then they would of had to leave the state before testifying. They could maybe have gone to Noelle Moeggenberg about witness tampering, but Moeggy would again do nothing but put on a show about how mad she is about it.

  3. Why do you have to bring this up after all these years??? You weren’t there or even involved, but yet you feel inspired to spew your hateful rhetoric about someone you don’t even know. I feel great pity for you. Get over it as everyone makes mistakes. I can guarantee you are not perfect either, you just didn’t get caught.

I remember encountering him years ago and he was always personable and professional. I feel great pity for you. Get over it as everyone makes mistakes. I can guarantee you are not perfect either, you just didn’t get caught.
