An Evansville, Indiana fire captain who is also a city councilman is facing termination after he was accused of drinking following a council meeting, and before returning to duty with the fire department.
Evansville Fire Department Captain Al Lindsey, a Sixth Ward city councilman, was suspended and placed on unpaid administrative leave following the January 23, 2012 incident. Fire Chief Mike Connelly suspended Lindsey, and has recommended termination to the fire merit commission.
Lindsey admitted to being in a bar following the council meeting, but denies he had anything alcoholic to drink. While in the bar he had a heated disagreement with another councilperson, Missy Mosby. Someone thereafter reported the incident to the mayor.
