Oregon State Police Trooper on Leave after Corvallis Shop Says He Didn’t Wear a Mask

CORVALIS, Ore. — An Oregon State Trooper is on paid administrative leave after an employee of a coffee shop complained he didn’t wear a mask when entering the establishment.

It’s required under a statewide order by the governor to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports the assistant manager Allan’s Coffee & Tea in Corvallis said the trooper on Wednesday told him Gov. Kate Brown had no authority to take away civil liberties and uttered a vulgarity directed toward the governor.

State police spokesman Capt. Timothy Fox said the trooper has been placed on leave and an internal investigation has begun.
