Grand Rapids Officer Being Investigated

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A Grand Rapids police lieutenant has been placed on leave while he is being investigated.

Lt. Ryan McClimans, 43, was placed on administrative leave April 5 while the department looks into an April 4 domestic violence allegation in Holland. The Ottawa County Prosecutor’s Office issued a warrant for misdemeanor domestic violence for McClimans, who surrendered Thursday and was arraigned in 58th District Court.

He was released on personal recognizance.

McClimans has been an officer with the Grand Rapids Police Department since 1994.

    This only comes to a surprise to those who do not realize that officers are human beings along with the rest of us. They are not robots designed to follow the legal system. These people we trust our lives with are just as corrupt, violent, drug abusing, and criminal as any other person is capable of being.

      This story tells absolutely nothing about what has happened for this charge to be brought against this Lt. Don't make assumptions before you hear the whole story.

      That's not %100 accurate, not at all.
      I have known officers who are Nobel, honest and above temptation.

      I have known military people of the same caliber

    Four accounts isn’t proof enough? I was not speaking against him personally, I am speaking of all officers. Not all of them are bad people but none of them are saints. None. They are people just like you and I and they fuck up. I’m sure this guy is guilty but that’s not the point. I have been harassed by an officer that I had flagged down to report a crime to. He was more interested in who I was and where I was going and what I was doing than he was about the criminal I had just warned him about. I have never been helped by an officer but I have been treated like a criminal for trying to HELP. It maybe personal from time to time but my conclusion on law enforcement is that they are no angels and they think that because they wear that badge and drive around that they’re doing something….intimidation does not stop crime, giving a shit does…and I’m just not seeing enough giving a shit. My opinion is not going to change because some guy thinks I’m mean.

      Wow, sounds like you really need to lose the chip on your shoulder against all law inforcement.

    Human or not he is held to a higher standard because he chose to be a cop. If as an officer he can’t or won’t control his behavior he has no BUSINESS being a policy enforcer. Let him get drunk and beat his wife without taxpayer money.

    cops make mistakes and instead of putting down pray for him to get help. we all need it from time to time. God forgives us all for what we've done and he will be forgiven as well. God bless….

    cops are abusive have experienced it myself in my younger years. Sure it is much worse now. mental makeup of a criminal and a cop are the same google it. They recruit these traits as they have moved from peace officers to black booted para military thugs.

    Everyone makes mistakes, I think people are too hard on folks when they make a mistake. We all err in some way.
