Committee recommends reinstating Parsons as police officer

By Jenny Arnold

The city of Lancaster's employee grievance committee has voted to reinstate a former Lancaster Police Department detective, and finds that the matter points to larger problems within the police department.

Former Sgt. Pat Parsons was fired March 2 following complaints from Angela Thompson and her son, LaDarius Truesdale, 18, in February.

In their complaints, Thompson and Truesdale said Parsons used obscene language and threatened Truesdale and his family as Parsons investigated a case involving a stolen scooter.
