A police officer has been fired after he was videotaped working at his auto business while out on temporary disability leave, city officials said.
Officer Gino Pulvirenti was notified Wednesday of his termination in a four-page letter that says charges of conduct unbecoming an officer, malfeasance and untruthfulness, and two ethics code violations have been substantiated.
The city says video surveillance showed Pulvirenti, who has been out of work on disability since October 2012, working on vehicles, lifting parts and loading wooden pallets into a truck at his East Main Street automotive business, GP Auto Sales and Service.
