Indianola police officer fired

INDIANOLA, Miss. (AP) - The City Council has voted to fire a police officer amid allegations that he acted inappropriately in the line of duty.

WXVT reports the council took the action on Tuesday against Officer Scott Hagerman. He had been on the force for 2 years.

City officials say the firing was tied to allegations that Hagerman choked a man who arrived at an accident scene to check on his grandmother and that he pushed the woman into a car.

Police Chief Richard O'Bannon investigated and asked for the special meeting with the City Council.

Hagerman could not be reached for comment.
