The Panhandle town of Crestview is looking for a new police chief. As Sascha Cordner reports, the city's mayor fired Police Chief Brian Mitchell Wednesday.
Mayor David Cadle says an ongoing investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement led to the indictment and arrest of former police Major Joseph Floyd. He’s been charged with racketeering for allegedly abusing and intimidating residents and officers, while working directly under former police chief Brian Mitchell. So, Cadle suspended both in March, and decided to conduct his own investigation into the department.
