LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI — A meeting was held Wednesday to discuss alleged misconduct and employment status of a Lafayette police officer.

The Lafayette Police Civil Service Commission discussed Daniel Sells' alleged misconduct and employment status Wednesday.  However, the commission said they need more time to discuss it and need to ask Sells more questions before reaching a decision.

Until that happens, they said they can't reveal what allegations brought Sells to their attention, just that it was a rules violation. In the meantime, Lafayette Police Chief Patrick Flannelly said Sells will continue to work with the department.

However, this isn't the first time this has happened recently.

Back in December, officers Chris Jarrett and Charlie Williams were also scheduled to face the commission for possible disciplinary actions. That meeting was then canceled.

Flannelly said both Jarrett and Williams resigned before the meeting. Lafayette Police still have not made public what allegations led to Jarrett's and William's scheduled hearing.

As for Sells, the commission still needs to set a date to discuss the matter further.
