LAS VEGAS (AP) - A guard at the Henderson Detention Center just outside of Las Vegas logged an average of 27 hours of overtime a week in 2012.

The Las Vegas Sun reports that corrections officer Michael Ramseyer put in for 1,438 hours of overtime and collected an extra $84,166 last year.

The 73 officers at the jail had ample opportunity for time and a half pay last year, with staffing down because of resignations and transfers.

The Sun reports that the guards earned a total of $668,000 in overtime, an average of about $9,000 each.

Had Ramseyer spread his hours out evenly over the year, he would have worked nearly 10 hours each day.

Ramseyer declined to comment to the Sun through a Henderson spokesman.
