Former Lubbock Officer Wants His Job Back So He Can Quit

Testimony ended Tuesday in a former Lubbock Police Officer's hearing to get his job back. The Lubbock Police Department suspended Officer Nicholas Medina last January. Medina was accused of using excessive force during two arrests last year. But, Medina went to court and a jury found him not guilty of that crime. Now, he is asking the police department to re-instate him so he can leave the force on good terms and get another job elsewhere.

At the hearing, Medina said he believed he served the public of Lubbock to the best and fullest of his ability. He is also seeking back pay for the year he has been absent from work. Although testimony ended Tuesday, a decision will not be reached for at least 30 days.
