Morgan County sheriff seeks investigation after video released

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — A TikTok user released a video over the weekend reportedly showing the arrest of one or more people in Morgan County Saturday after an incident Dec. 3 at the Troubadour Lounge.

The video, just over 5 minutes in length, showed a tense exchange among deputies and at least two men. The video is now unavailable on the platform.

Morgan County Sheriff KC Bohrer says, “I have requested an investigation into the matter by an independent agency to be totally transparent and through.”

He says the issue will be ” thoroughly and impartially investigated” and asked for patience during the investigation. “As in any investigation it takes time to gather all the facts.”

Sheriff Bohrer confirmed his officers were wearing body cameras.
