Former officer awaits Civil Service decision


By Brandon Ward

    The Meridian Civil Service Commission met at City Hall Tuesday evening to discuss whether former Meridian Police Department officer Adam Meadors will get his job back.

    Meadors was fired in October by then Police Chief James Lee for allegedly posting a photo of two chimpanzees with the caption, "Earlier today, the mayor and chief of police had meeting."    

    After an internal investigation, Meadors was fired for violating the city's social media policy and for unbecoming conduct.

    The Civil Service Commission said they have reached a decision in the case but would not release their finding for at least a couple more days.
