Bossier police Lieutenant John Gill was involved in an accident in Shreveport last year. He was arrested by Shreveport police and charged with a DWI. Lt. Gill apparently refused to take a breathalyzer test. This week he was acquitted of the charges. The Bossier police department decided not to punish Lt. Gill either. Some wonder why he was not fired. Chief Mike Halphen says the officers in his department work under civil service laws. According to these laws he can`t terminate someone for being charged with DWI while off duty. "Unless I can show how it grossly affected the good operations of the police department." In this case Lt. Gill was not on call and not on the job when the accident happened. That`s why Chief Halphen says no disciplinary action was taken against Lt. Gill. The Chief says he had no other choice, but to follow the civil service laws.
