Monday night at the Fremont City Council meeting the decision was made to terminate Randy Wright from his position as Chief of Police.
The action came after two charges were filed last week against the former chief in Ingham County and Kent County. Wright is charged with Sexual Misconduct 4th degree, stemming from an incident that is alleged to have occurred this past June during a group bus ride. Both Wright and the woman reporting the behavior were on the bus as part of a group outing organized by the Fraternal Order of Police.
The City placed Wright on paid administrative leave last week and this was the first regular meeting of the City Council since the story broke.
Sergeant Jon Geeting will continue to supervise the department as he has since Wright was placed on leave
