Now this is wacky. Former DeKalb County police chief Terrell Bolton, who alleges DeKalb CEO Burrell Ellis was just out to get him when Ellis fired him last year, now claims a gaggle of motorcyclists targeted him this week on a Dallas, Texas, tollway. One biker struck and damaged his rear-view mirror, Bolton said, while the driver of a nearby pickup truck made an offensive hand gesture.
DeKalb County acted properly in firing police chief Terrell Bolton for insubordination and improper use of county vehicles, a Superior Court judge has ruled. Even if it hadn’t, Judge Robert J. Castellani ruled Thursday, Bolton took too long to respond to a motion to dismiss his appeal.
