Platteville Cop Accused of Running Crack House & Smoking Crack On Duty

Since she was hopped up on crack in the line of duty, will this throw any of her arrests into doubt?

Federal prosecutors charged a southwestern Wisconsin police officer Tuesday with maintaining a crack house, saying she used the drug while on duty on several occasions.

FBI agents arrested Platteville Police Officer Michelle Salentine, 28, on Monday night when she showed up to work her patrol shift, according to court documents. She could face 20 years in prison if convicted.

According to court documents, an informant contacted FBI agents in February and told them Salentine regularly smoked crack at a Platteville location as well as her own home. The informant said he had seen Salentine smoke crack on at least six occasions, including times when she was in uniform and carrying a firearm.
