Trial set for Oct. 26 for Ottawa Hills officer

An Oct. 26 trial date was set in Lucas County Common Pleas Court yesterday for an Ottawa Hills police officer who was charged with shooting a motorcyclist during a traffic stop.

Thomas White, 27, is charged with felonious assault with a gun specification.

He faces up to 11 years in prison if convicted.

The officer is charged with shooting Michael McCloskey of Maumee during a May 23 traffic stop. Mr. McCloskey, who was stopped for speeding, is paralyzed from the waist down after his spine was severed by the bullet, authorities said.

Officer White is a part-time officer who also works as a part-time dispatcher for the village. He remains on medical leave pending the outcome of the case.
