Michigan Police Sergeant Fired Over Police Report

WARREN, Mich. — A 45-year-old Warren police commander has been fired because his written report about a traffic stop and a drug-related arrest didn’t match separate videos of the incident.

Deputy Commissioner Louis Galasso tells The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens that Sgt. Tim Maniere was fired Friday following an internal affairs investigation.

Galasso said a TV Warren cameraman was traveling with Maniere in July when the 15-year department veteran arrested a suspect on a felony narcotics charge.

The case was dismissed and Maniere was suspended with pay after an evidentiary hearing in January showed the video and footage from the officer’s patrol car didn’t match his written report.

A phone number listed in Maniere’s name rang unanswered Tuesday.

The Warren Police Command Officers Association hasn’t decided whether to challenge Maniere’s dismissal.
