LPD officer convicted of buying alcohol for 19-year-old girlfriend

LINCOLN, Neb. — A Lincoln Police officer has been convicted for procuring alcohol to a minor.

26-year-old Scott Bierle, who served as an officer for 4 years, was cited on January 8th for procuring alcohol to his 19-year-old girlfriend.

He was convicted of that charge on Monday.

Bierle resigned from the force in late January, after being cited for the charge by the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office earlier that month.

In December 2018, Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister said he asked LSO to do a criminal investigation into Bierle providing his girlfriend with alcohol.

"The actions of this employee are in contrast to LPD's mission and goals and culture, namely dedicated public service, community partnerships, and fair and impartial policing," LPD said in a release.

The charge is a Class 1 Misdemeanor, and is scheduling is set for October 11.
