The Police Merit Commission voted on Friday to delay officer Steve Hicks' hearing because his attorney is sick.
The 2012 Officer of the Year faces a formal complaint after people said he acted inappropriately towards a woman working at Ricks 718 Bar in September.
Police Chief Billy Bollin recommended Hicks be fired, but says the process is taking longer than he'd like.
Bolin says he has not spoken to Hicks since the ordeal began. Hicks will remain on administrative leave until the next hearing on december 16.
