City Offers DUI Hit-&-Run Cop Job Back

A former Spokane police sergeant fired after a drunken hit-and-run crash has been offered a spot as a detective after a change in state law lifted his driving restrictions. City officials notified Bradley N. Thoma on Friday that he can return at the demoted level immediately after he obtained an unrestricted driver’s license this week, said Marlene Feist, city spokeswoman. Thoma, a 20-year police veteran, has not yet accepted the position, which pays between $74,000 and $82,000 annually. He made about $91,000 as a sergeant. Bob Dunn, a lawyer who filed a $4 million wrongful termination claim against the city on his behalf, was not available for comment Friday afternoon/Meghann Cuniff, SR. More here.

Question: Do you want this guy investigating crime?
