COLBERT, Okla. – A Colbert police officer has been fired for failing a random drug test. Police Chief Bryan Gordon said Tuesday morning that four new hires were randomly given a 5-level drug test, one of whom failed the test. The employees were apparently still under their 90-day probation period.
Names have not been released at this time, and the final results are not being announced.
