"This is Sheridan County Sheriff Terry Robbins (on left.) Sheriff Robbins was accused of being drunk by the Lakota warriors and relatives while performing a round dance on the north side of White Clay, Nebraska. Sheriff Robbins was on duty, operating a state vehicle, and carrying a firearm. Robbins was given a breathalyzer by his own state trooper in front of all community members present at the direct action protest. Robbins passed the breath test, but in my opinion, it was botched."
Protesters said videos posted reveal Sheriff Robbins was slurring his speech.
