A former Findlay police officer is suing a current officer. The Courier reports Dave Hill of Van Buren claims a female officer made “false and defamatory” comments about him to internal investigators in November of 2012. Hill is seeking $750,000 in compensatory damages, $750,000 in punitive damages; claiming the woman cited in the suit had harassed him.
In the complaint filed November 8, Hill said the officer made jokes about an imaginary pregnancy.
Earlier this year supervisors had recommended Hill be fired following an incident where he stuck his service pistol in his mouth during roll call, and had referred to the female officer he’s suing by her name combined with a name for a prostitute. However an arbitrator ruled in August that Hill would return to full rank without back pay. The City of Findlay continues to challenge that ruling.
