LAKEWOOD -- A fired Lakewood police officer says he'll fight his termination.
Brian Wurts told The News Tribune that he was fired with no evidence of wrongdoing.
The police department issued a statement Wednesday saying Wurts was terminated Dec. 28 for misconduct.
Wurts was president of the Lakewood Police Independent Guild at the time Officer Skeeter Timothy Manos was treasurer of the police union. Manos pleaded guilty to a federal charge of wire fraud in the theft of charitable donations made to the families of four slain Lakewood officers.
Wurts said he had nothing to do with the theft.
