A former North Myrtle Beach police officer has filed a lawsuit saying he was forced to resign after his bosses accused him of leaking confidential information about the 2009 Horry County wildfire.
The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported Tuesday that Randy Fisher is seeking an unspecified judgment that would include lost wages, benefits and attorney's fees. No trial date has been scheduled
Fisher says he was forced to quit Nov. 12. The newspaper reported that in a taped conversation from that day, assistant city manager Steve Thomas accused Fisher of trying to embarrass officials by leaking information on the city's response to the fire that destroyed about 75 homes.
Fisher denied the claim and offered to take a lie detector test.
City officials wouldn't discuss the lawsuit.
