RICHWOOD, W.Va. (AP) - A Richwood police officer has been fired for unprofessional behavior, but the exact nature of that behavior is being kept under wraps.
Police Chief Rick Burroughs confirmed today that Officer Chad Shafer has been removed from the force.
Shafer's alleged unprofessional behavior came to light during a continuing investigation by the regional drug task force.
Neither Burroughs nor Mayor Bob Henry Baber would give details, citing the fact that the probe is ongoing.
Baber did say though that the city has "zero tolerance for conduct unbecoming an officer."
