Pa. police chief's suspension under review



Published: Thu, August 1, 2013 @ 5:15 p.m.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The lawyer for a police chief who posted a profanity-laden video online says he’s reviewing the legality of his client’s 30-day unpaid suspension for using borough weapons and ammunition without prior approval.

Joseph Nahas said today that Gilberton Police Chief Mark Kessler believes he did have permission to use the equipment he was shown firing.

Nahas says he and Kessler haven’t talked about litigation, but points out Kessler has an employment contract, and state law gives him certain protections as a chief of police.

Nahas says Kessler is worried the borough council that suspended him on Wednesday night may move to terminate him before he’s scheduled to return to the job.
