Fountain Hill officials tonight fired a police officer who allegedly used "unreasonable force" on a suspect in custody and then lied about the incident.
Borough council voted unanimously to terminate officer Grady Cunningham, effective immediately. Mayor Jose Rosado recommended Cunningham be fired for "conduct unbecoming a police officer."
Allowing Cunningham to remain on the police force would expose the borough to undue liability and erode the department's credibility, Rosado said.
