N.C. Chief Fired for Ordering Officer To Drive Son To Work
August 16, 2012
The Boiling Springs Lakes (N.C.) Police chief was fired Tuesday, after an investigation found that he had ordered one of his officers to drive his son to work.
Emmett Ballree was asked to turn in his badge for abusing his position of power. The act is considered a misappropriation of city resources.
Ballree told WWAY-TV he will seek a career outside of law enforcement.

I suspect there is more to the story.

Henry, Right you are! I read the article and have to agree that this little burg is knee deep in bovine waste, from top to bottom. Seems the chief has a history that would get you kicked from any agency. Blues, stay safe and watch your six.
