The letter states the guard, Rashawn Smith, was first reprimanded by his supervisors after another employee found Smith asleep in his patrol car while he was assigned to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections on Oct. 10. Furthermore, it states Smith had left the back door of the building unsecured and propped open.

According to an incident report, another security was called to the board of elections to search the building to make sure no one had walked inside while Smith slept.

Just ten days later, on Oct. 20, Smith was discovered asleep in his patrol car inside the sheriff’s office parking garage.
