|A Calgary police officer who was paid $800k over nearly eight years while suspended from the force—and who was recently terminated—is appealing the decision in front of the Law Enforcement Review Board Thursday.|
Sgt. Anthony Braile was suspended with pay in December 2008 after an investigation into professional misconduct was launched against him.
|Braile was a District 2 supervisor when he was involved in a high-speed chase of a suspected drunk driver. The chase reached speeds of 145 km/h at some points and involved driving into oncoming traffic on one-way streets. Braile was never supposed to pursue. |
A criminal prosecution resulted, with Braile ultimately pleading guilty to a charge of careless driving under the Traffic Safety Act (TSA). Braile was also charged last week in another criminal matter. That case will have no impact on this appeal.
