Police sergeant fired for reprimanding officer in front of others

A Salisbury police sergeant was fired Thursday for reprimanding an officer in front of colleagues.

The police chief notified Sgt. Rodney Mahaley by letter of his termination, citing Mahaley’s conduct toward an officer after that officer struck him with a round of simulation ammunition.

“The actions displayed by you are contrary to the department’s expectations of a supervisor,” chief Rory Collins wrote in the letter.

Few other details about the event were immediately available.
