PARKERSBURG - A judge has upheld the firing of a Parkersburg police officer more than three years ago.
Wood County Circuit Court Judge Jeffrey Reed issued the ruling today upholding the firing of Officer Floyd Holliday in March 2010. The Parkersburg Police Department Civil Service Commission had overturned the firing, but the administration appealed the ruling, saying the commission had overstepped its authority.
Reed agreed, saying the commission "abused its discretion." Reed's ruling upholds Holliday's termination.
