DURANT, Okla. -- Durant Police Chief Gary Rudick is back on the job Monday after a five-day suspension. City manager Jim Dunegan placed Rudick on administrative leave without pay on November 12th.

Police will not release details of the suspension.

Coworkers say that Rudick is happy to be back on the job, and that Monday was business as usual.

We tried contacting the city manager and Chief Rudick, but both were unavailable for comment.

    I think it's about time someone took the side of the officers and put the blame where it belongs. Chief Rudick was wrong and was found guilty. He has been punished, even though some feel it was not enough, it's done! Chief Rudick now has a choice he can move foreward and become a better person or he can hold this against everyone and make things worse. The ball is in his court, if he can change his attitude toward certain persons within the department he can survive. If not he won't last long because the City Manager won't stand for much more of his behavior within the department. Chief mend some fences or get your resume up to date!

    I agree with the Interested Party from Durant, but the sad story is he was found guilty but not punished, that is what Durant is made of and the city is covering his back as well....

    Guilty is Guilty. I doubt that the city manager would suspend an innocent chief of police. Obviously what he did warranted the action taken. EVERYONE should think before they speak and some of you should not speak at all. For those who know what has happened (quietman)and are bad mouthing the FOP and the officers, you should be ashamed of yourselves for supporting what he has done and for bad mouthing the officers you serve. Supporting a man is one thing, supporting his bad deeds is another. He has been found guilty! Get over it. He was wrong! Some people owe others an apology!
