Former Police Chief Sues for $5million

A former Wiregrass Police Chief is suing the city of Elba for $5 million.  Harold Staley filed a 600-page lawsuit in a US District Court late last week claiming city officials, including the mayor devised a plan to not have to pay 9-1-1 workers unemployment when the city outsourced the  9-1-1 dispatching services.  Staley says when he wouldn’t go along with it, he was fired.  The city of Elba has not responded.
