A Rogersville woman testifying in the ouster hearing of the Webster County sheriff says a reserve sheriff’s officer once handcuffed her, because she wouldn’t let him inside her home. The now former reserve officer faces charges of impersonating an officer and committing false arrest. Rogersville resident Karen Patterson says he started to handcuff her after telling her she was under arrest for contempt of court for refusing to let him in her home. Other witnesses also have told the court about actions of former reserve officer Terry Voss. Patterson is one of 17 people to testify during the first day of the ouster lawsuit brought against Webster County Sheriff Ron Worsham. The Attorney General’s office says Worsham has neglected his duties, let unqualified personnel do law enforcement work and concealed certain actions by his employees.
