DOTHAN: Former Dothan Police Cpl. Raemonica Carney termination appeal before the Dothan Personnel Board kick off was at 8:30 AM.
Carney was suspended for a major offense of emails. After that disciplinary action and hearing upholding Chief Benton's actions, Carney and her boyfriend got into it.
Carney is reported to have used her Dothan Police Patrol vehicle to block her boyfriend's vehicle in her driveway and to prevent him from leaving. The boyfriend called 911 for help.
Dothan Police responded. Carney did not feel that she was subject to direction from the police. She felt she was off duty and not subject to their directives. She wanted to turn the cop mode off and on. On when to her advantage and off when not.
Dothan Police Patrol Lt. Scott Long is reported to have shown a tremendous amount of patience. Long gave numerous directives and when he finally said, last time or you are under arrest, reports are Carney then moved her patrol vehicle.
As a result of the internal affairs investigation and evidence, Chief Benton terminated Carney from the Dothan Police Department.
Carney has appealed the decision of Chief Benton to the Dothan Personnel Board. That hearing is on going today.
Following the hearing and testimony the board will wait for the court reporter to transcribe the testimony. Following the transcription the board will then have another meeting where they will render their decision.
