Colbert Police Chief Fired

The Colbert city police chief who was suspended was officially fired last night. John Polston was suspended after a list of accusations from insubordination to ordering officers not to speak with city council members. After an executive session Monday night the council decided to fire Polston. That termination is pending a hearing later in the week. In the meantime the city has promoted Captain Wesley Crank into the chief position. A final decision as to who the chief is going to be will be made at the next city council meeting.
