LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A former Lawrence police officer says he plans to sue the city over his firing after he was accused of fixing traffic tickets.
Michael Monroe was one of two officers the city alleged fixed traffic tickets in exchange for University of Kansas basketball tickets.
City Manager David Corliss has said the person whose traffic tickets were fixed is in federal prison related to a broader Kansas ticket scandal.
Police Chief Tarik Khatib fired Monroe in March and Corliss later overruled a city employee grievance board's decision that Monroe should be reinstated with a demotion.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports Monroe learned last week that Corliss upheld Khatib's decision.
City officials declined to discuss Monroe's grievance.
The other officer resigned in February.
