City officials call former officer's claims 'scandalous'

Posted: Updated:
RUTLAND, Vt. -

A former Rutland City police officer's lawsuit is being challenged by city officials.

They call the content "scandalous" and say the claims should be tossed because they lack legal standing.

Andrew Todd, who currently serves in the State Police, alleges he witnessed racism, signs of intoxication on the firing range, time card fraud, and sex on the job over his 8-year career with the department.

He says his verbal and written complaints were ignored, and faced retaliation for speaking up.

Todd has filed a civil suit against the police chief and commissioner, among others.

The Rutland Herald reports that a lawyer for the city says no corrupt culture exists within the department and says those claims should be stricken from the record.
