DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) _ A workplace investigation accuses a North Dakota sheriff of creating a toxic environment that led to health problems for some employees.
Stark County commissioners filed the report last week with Gov. Jack Dalrymple's office, along with a request to have Sheriff Clarence Tuhy removed from his post.
Tuhy said in the report that he could be tough but described himself as fair. The sheriff declined comment.
Ernie Shear, one of Tuhy's former deputies, said in the report that working alongside Tuhy made him physically ill and described a ``sense of doom'' at the office. Shear told the newspaper that Tuhy's removal ``is a long time coming.''
The governor's staff is reviewing the investigation, which was conducted by Bismarck attorney Leslie Oliver.
