Court Transcript: Cleveland police chief Snyder knew of drug, sex rumors

A transcript of court testimony in a lawsuit against the Cleveland Police Department released today supports the Times Free Press’ account of the hearing and refutes the Cleveland police chief’s characterization of the reporting as “grossly inaccurate” and “totally irresponsible.”

Assistant Police Chief Gary Hicks testified Nov. 17 in a lawsuit brought by former detective Duff Brumley, who was fired in 2010.

As part of his testimony, Hicks said he had reported rumors to Chief Wes Snyder involving, among other things, officers snorting crushed hydrocodone pills and having relationships with underage girls.

ADDED: As we have maintained all along, either the police chief lied in court, under oath… or he’s lying now. Both of which are completely unacceptable.
