LITTLE ROCK, AR – Brinkley Police Chief Michael Edwards was fired on Tuesday.
Brinkley Mayor Bill Hankins sys the chief was terminated after a review of a state police investigation found he violated the city’s personnel policy prohibiting sexual harassment.
Hankins says Cpt. Ed Randles is in charge of the police department.
Edwards’ attorney says prosecutors declined to file any charges against his client. He calls the allegations false and an attempt by a department employee to get back at Edwards for rejecting unwanted sexual advances.
Edwards will appeal this decision during the next city council meeting on August 21st.
