FARGO, N.D. — A fired Fargo police officer is appealing his termination, with his attorney stating that claims made by his supervisors were trumped up and disparaging.

David Boelke is appealing to the city’s Civil Service Commission.

KFGO reports Chief Dave Todd fired the 15-year veteran saying he made “intentional and willful decisions” not to respond to calls, not to collect evidence and showed disrespect and discourteous behavior toward other officers and lacked patience with the public.
