    Wow. It may have been out of character but that cop should feel lucky he

    A. he still has his job.
    B. that man lived.

    Stupid, just stupid and it all may have blown over for him if he had just apologized when she came to the station. He knows the call is being recorded but no one will listen unless there is a reason. Arresting her was the reason.

    Wow if something like that happened to my wife I am guessing I would let a few swear words fly. That guy should be **** canned.

    That's just unbelievable. I don't see how they wouldn't get people swearing every once in a while. It must be a bit of a stressful position to be in to have to call 911.

    He'll probably get suspended with pay while they do an "investigation", then being that he has 20 years in he'll just retire with his full pension and get a job somewhere else.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    I'd bet more information could be found out the outcome.

    LINCOLN PARK: Arbitrator upholds officer's suspension in light of botched 911 calls - thenewsherald.com

    Those charges were later dismissed after a city prosecutor said there was insufficient evidence to warrant her arrest.

    The teen threatened to file a wrongful arrest lawsuit against the city, but the matter was settled beforehand.

    The city agreed to pay the teen $35,000 on a condition that she not disclose the amount of money she received.

    The News-Herald Newspapers obtained the settlement amount under the Michigan Freedom of Information Act. As taxpayer money was used to settle the case, the city cannot legally withhold the terms of the agreement.

    City Attorney Edward Zelenak said hes pleased with the outcome.

    Its a fair and just resolution of the case, he said.

    After an internal investigation, McFarland was given a 10-day unpaid suspension and was ordered to participate in an anger management class.


    Through his union, he filed a grievance against the discipline. However, an outside arbitrator upheld it, according to City Manager Steve Duchane, who announced the decision Wednesday.

    Yeah this is a bit old. I don't think he was fired or barely even punished, which is an absolute disgrace.

    Looks like it was just 2 week suspension without pay. Not only that, but the guy appealed the suspension! LINCOLN PARK: Arbitrator upholds officer's suspension in light of botched 911 calls - thenewsherald.com

    If you deal with the highway patrol you usually end up dealing with a true law enforcement professional.

    Deal with city cops and you either get Barney Fife or the school bully that is now carrying a 9mm and wearing a badge of "authority".
