LELAND, NC (WWAY) — Leland Town Manager David Hollis told Chad Adams on The Big Talker FM this morning that former Police Chief Tim Jayne has appealed his termination.
Hollis fired Jayne last week.
Hollis says Jayne will be able to sit down with him and give his side of the story. He says the town council will not get a vote in the matter.
Jayne has been at the center of controversy since we first broke the story in September that one of his female officers had been shot in the crotch with simunition during a training exercise. Since airing that story, more accusations of corruption and wrong-doing have surfaced, which no one with the town or the police department has refuted.
