A former Bowling Green police officer is suing the city after he was fired in June.

Charges filed by Mayor Walker accuse Brad Fulks of allowing minors to drink while at his apartment, using a department breathalyzer while off-duty, disobeying a direct order, and harassing behavior that bordered on stalking.

In his appeal, Fulks' attorney says the city didn't provide the personnel records he needed to defend his client.

The appeal goes on to say that the city violated some of the state's bill of rights for police officers.

Fulks' attorney says his client is seeking more than just back pay and his old job back.

"Clearing his name is very important to Officer Fulks as it is for any public officer in this country. I've represented police for 28 years, and that's probably the most important thing that drives these cases," said Mark Miller, Fulks' attorney.

WBKO was unable to reach the city attorney for comment this afternoon.

The city now has 20 days to respond to the appeal. It could be as long as nine months before the case goes to trial.
