Allen County sheriff cited in traffic collision

LIMA, Ohio - Allen County Sheriff Dan Beck received a traffic citation from one of his own deputies yesterday after he rear-ended a motorist on Elida Road by the Lima Mall.

"If I deserve it, slap it on me," the sheriff said after the 3:15 p.m. incident.

Sheriff Beck, 56, was cited for failure to yield. Deputies said he had just pulled out of the mall parking lot when he ran into the rear of a car driven by Mike Reynolds of Lima. No one was injured but both vehicles, including the sheriff's county-owned sport utility vehicle, were damaged.
