EVANSVILLE, Ind.(WEHT)- A former Evansville police detective who’s still with the department on paid leave, spent his Monday morning protesting outside the Civic Center.
Tony Mayhew, a longtime EPD employee, says he’s upset over the way he has been treated by the courts and is trying to get portions of his pension back after a divorce.
He also held up a sign outside of the Civic Center demanding Chief Billy Bolin resign.
Mayhew says he wishes it wouldn’t have come to this, but he hopes by bringing awareness, the public will be able to find out what’s really going on at EPD.
He says the last year’s vote of no confidence against Chief Bolin speaks volumes.
Mathew says, “Its absolutely illegal you cannot do that you cannot punish people for exercising their constitutional rights and the chief has done things like this his entire career as chief.”
We reached out to Evansville police Chief Bolin and he tells us that Mayhew is a respected detective.
At this time he does not plan on commenting on the matter.
