Former officer files suit against East Ridge police
EAST RIDGE, Tennessee (WDEF) – A former East Ridge Police officer who claims he was fired for complaining about the department, has filed a lawsuit against the city.
Adam Rose was fired last November, after a investigation into what was called an ‘inappropriate relationship’ with an 18-year-old high school student.
The lawsuit says an investigation later cleared him of that charge.
Rose earlier had helped form a union, after noting the department, quote, “has always failed to provide its officers with appropriate equipment and necessary training.”
The lawsuit asks for 900-thousand dollars in damages.
