Sunset Beach cop fired after investigation into court testimony


SUNSET BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- Sunset Beach has fired a police officer who was under investigation after issues about testimony he gave during a recent court case.

According to a termination letter, Police Chief Lisa Massey fired Jamie Clemmons Wednesday. The letter says the termination is because Clemmons violated town and department policies, including standard of conduct, truthfulness, departmental reports and preparation for court.

Massey's letter says testimony Clemmons gave in superior court last month during a woman's appeal of a DWI conviction in district court included a DWI report with information different from the one he presented in district court.

Clemmons can appeal his termination.
