Reinstated Craig Beach police chief placed on leave

CRAIG BEACH, Ohio -

Former Craig Beach Police Chief Joe Borosky was placed back on the job on Tuesday, and then immediately removed from his duties.

Borosky was fired last year after dash cam video showed him becoming aggressive with a woman during a traffic stop and then lying about the incident when questioned.

In his ruling on a wrongful termination lawsuit filed by Borosky, Mahoning County Common Pleas Judge Lou D'Apolito found that village officials didn't follow proper procedure during the firing process and ordered reinstatement for Borosky.

Although the village officially reinstated Borosky on Tuesday, he was immediately placed on paid administrative leave according to Mayor Dave Spencer, who says he expects village council to discuss the employment future of Borosky at its regular meeting on July 8.

Last year, a grand jury indicted Borosky and former council member Wanda Sabol amid allegations that they lied about evidence being used in a disciplinary investigation stemming from the excessive force incident.

At the request of the Mahoning County Prosecutor's office, Judge James Evans granted a motion to dismiss perjury charges.
