City leaders still refuses to comment on why they've removed Eric Bush as the Police Department's leader, but they officially fired him Wednesday.
Bush's attorney, Roxanne Farra of Bend has already filed a wrongful termination lawsuit in Crook County Circuit Court.
She says the evidence in this case will prove that Chief Bush was fired because of his uniformed service in the National Guard. Specifically his selection in July of 2013, as Deputy Assistant Chief of Staff of the U.S. Forces Korea.
Bush had been a member of the Prineville police force since 1990.
