Police Firing-Parking Ticket

NORTHPORT, Ala A Northport police officer is fighting his dismissal by claiming he was fired for giving a ticket to another police officer.
Terry Zilke contends he was fired from the Northport Police Department after ticketing a fellow officer for parking in a handicapped spot.
A civil service board upheld Zilke's dismissal, so he filed an appeal Monday in Tuscaloosa County Circuit Court.
The complaint says a supervisor instructed Zilke to issue a ticket to another officer on Sept. 26. That officer filed a harassment complaint against Zilke, who was fired in October.
The Civil Service Board heard evidence and upheld the officer's termination at a hearing on Dec. 17.
Zilke is asking to be reinstated and reimbursed for lost pay and benefits.
