An officer with the South Kingstown (RI) Police Department—who claims he was permanently injured on duty in 2010—was again denied his request for an accidental disability pension.

The South Kingstown officer claims a 2010 accident and confrontation caused Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and left him unable to continue his career in law enforcement.

The back-and-forth battle involving 49-year-old Damon Borrelli began in 2011, moving from years before the board, to an appeal in Superior Court, and then back to the board earlier this year after Judge Jeffrey Lanphear vacated the board's previous denials, according to WPRI-TV.

Borrelli now has the option to appeal the board's vote with the subcommittee again, and if denied again, he could go back to Superior Court.
