Wow, actually holding your enforcers to account for their despicable actions!? I'm shocked! - ChrisPIEDMONT — A police officer who wrote a $2,500 ticket to a mother on a public urination complaint against her 3-year-old son has been fired, City Manager Jim Crosby said Tuesday.
Crosby said he fired officer Ken Qualls on Friday, following a hearing Nov. 14.
Prosecutors at the Canadian County district attorney's office declined to pursue the case against the mother, Crosby said.
[...]Qualls plans to appeal the decision, Crosby said. A hearing will be scheduled before a Piedmont personnel board.
