BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — Following the release earlier this month of a video on Tik Tok that showed a tense exchange among Morgan County deputies and at least two men during an arrest, Morgan County Sheriff K.C. Bohrer says the incident is being investigated by an independent agency.

The video purportedly shows incidents related to an incident December 3rd at the Troubadour Lounge.  The original poster asked Tik Tok to “do its thing” in posting the video, which appeared to removed for a time but is back up.

This week, Morgan County Sheriff KC Bohrer told The Panhandle News Network he had requested an investigation into the matter “by an independent agency to be totally transparent and through.”

He says the issue will be ”thoroughly and impartially investigated” and asked for patience during the investigation. “As in any investigation it takes time to gather all the facts.”

Sheriff Bohrer tells the Panhandle News Network his officers did have body cameras.
