Piedmont City Manager Jim Crosby met with Piedmont Police Officer Ken Qualls Thursday and hasn’t reached a decision yet as to whether Qualls will remain employed as an officer.
Crosby said the officer gave his side of the story and now Crosby has five days to make his decision to terminate Qualls or suspend him.
He said he would ultimately make his decision by Monday.
Qualls has fallen under scrutiny after issuing Ashley Warden a $2,500 citation for her three-year-old son urinating in their front yard.
After Crosby announces his decision to Qualls, he will then be allowed to appeal or accept the decision and if he appeals it, then he will have five days to make his case to the personnel board with the city.
