Friday, we told you the story of APD Sergeant John Guilmette who went to serve and fight in Iraq only to find he'd been stabbed in the back by APD at home. After a 9 month tour of duty, Detective Sergeant Guilmette returned not to a hero's welcome, but to what amounts to a demotion at APD.
The APD brain trust including Deputy Chief Michael Calloway decided not to give the sergeant his old job back or even a comparable one as required by federal law. Instead, they put him back in uniform and placed him in an almost used up vehicle at a time when every other sergeant with his level of seniority was getting brand new Tahoes.
Our Eyes tell us that yesterday Sergeant Guilmette fired back when his legal team officially filed his tort claim against APD. It will be interesting to see how the city and APD handle the situation now that the legal process has been set in motion.
