City terminates officer Qualls

By Matt Montgomery
News Editor

Piedmont City Manager Jim Crosby terminated Piedmont Police Officer Ken Qualls today for just cause.

Crosby met with Qualls yesterday as part of a pre-disciplinary hearing and notified the officer that he would have a decision made within five days.

Officer Qualls fell under scrutiny after writing Ashley Ward a ticket for $2,500 because he saw her three-year-old son urinating in the Warden’s front yard.

The ticket was later ripped up and thrown out, but the talk of the situation lingered on.

Officer Qualls has a couple of days to appeal Crosby’s decision to the city’s personnel board.
