Former Dothan Police Officer Dies At Volunteer Event

An off-duty security officer at Farley Nuclear Plant is dead after trying to secure a large inflatable castle for a company picnic.

Assistant Houston County Coroner Ben Earnest tells the Dothan Eagle that 49-year old Ronald Walsh died after something hit him in the head.

Earnest says Walsh was trying to secure the inflatable castle after it came loose from a storm. The inflatable castle began to roll down a hill when the former Dothan police officer ran back into it.

He was volunteering with a band booster group that was helping to set up the event.
