DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Any disciplinary action taken against two Iowa State Patrol supervisors for highly publicized missteps while off-duty did not affect their pay.

Iowa Department of Public Safety spokesman Alex Murphy said Wednesday the internal investigations into Lt. Kelly Hindman and Capt. Ken Clary have been concluded.

Hindman faced scrutiny after joking on Facebook that he wished a sniper would shoot ESPN basketball announcer Dan Dakich in the head. He leads the patrol’s Fort Dodge office.

Clary was investigated after being pulled over by a trooper for driving 92 miles per hour in a 70-mph zone and initially let go without a ticket.

Murphy said both matters were addressed, but that he couldn’t elaborate because they’re confidential. He confirmed their pay wasn’t cut.

Clary earned $97,000 while Hindman earned $94,000 last year.
