Hearing held for fired Bluff City police officer
The city of Bluff City upheld the firing of Police Officer Billy Mark Roberts today.
Robert was terminated April 5. The city claimed that he fell asleep at work, did not perform his duties properly and missed a mandatory training exercise.
A hearing on Roberts’ termination was held at City Hall. Chief Greg DePew and Sgt. Wes Welker both testified in support of the city’s reasons for termination. Roberts represented himself at the hearing and said he had different recollections of several incidents.
ADDED: Retaliation against whistle-blowing cops is rampant in TN, this may infact be one of those cases.
