Pequot Lakes police chief fired


Staff Writer

Pequot Lakes Police Chief Jerry Braam, on paid administrative leave since Aug. 16, was fired Tuesday.

The Pequot Lakes City Council, following a half-hour closed session, voted 4-1 to terminate Braam's employment with the city, Mayor Nancy Adams said. Council member Tom Ryan voted against Braam's termination. Ryan could not be reached for comment Tuesday night.

Braam was placed on paid administrative leave by Adams on Aug. 16 after Adams said she received a complaint against the police chief. Details of the complaint against Braam have not been released by the city.

Tuesday's closed session, as publicized, was for the purpose to engage in preliminary consideration of allegations or charges of misconduct of a city employee. Though Braam wasn't named in the meeting notice, he was in attendence at the meeting and requested it be closed.

In an interview shortly before closed session, Braam said he wasn't certain he'd be attending because his legal representation, based in the Twin Cities, wouldn't be present. He declined to comment on the complaint against him or about being placed on administrative leave. Braam couldn't be reached following the closed session …

You will have to follow the link, since there are litigious bastards about lurking forums to whine about copyright issues as a last ditch effort to save their doomed enterprises: The print news media.
