The state's liquor board has fired two agents and a supervisor and disciplined two other supervisors over a raid at a Fort Worth gay bar.
The June 28 raid at the Rainbow Lounge left a customer with a serious head injury.
Their supervisor, Sgt. Terry Parsons, was not at the Fort Worth bar that night but also was fired, effective Sept. 2.
A review found Aller and Chapman failed to report that they used force when arresting the customer or that he was seriously injured. They also were accused of participating in the raid without their supervisor's approval, disrupting the business during the raid and wearing improper attire.
The employees may protest by submitting a written grievance in the next 10 working days.
Here's more, according to the TABC report:
-- Parsons failed to ensure that the agents submitted a report on using force during the arrest, and did not take appropriate action after learning they didn't wear proper attire during the raid and did not notify supervisors that multiple arrests had been made that night.
-- Parsons' direct supervisor, Lt. Gene Anderson, is suspended without pay for three days and put on probation for six months for his lack of monitoring the training of new agents. Anderson also was cited for inadequate supervisory oversight of his employees and their activities.
-- Capt. Robert "Charlie" Cloud, who oversaw the Dallas and Fort Worth TABC offices, has received a written reprimand for not following the incident notification policy, inadequately monitoring the training of new agents and inadequately supervising the Fort Worth employees and their activities.
