Former Pine Lawn officer under investigation sues for wrongful termination

Posted: Updated:

PINE LAWN, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A former police officer that is facing federal civil rights charges is suing the Pine Lawn Police Department for wrongful termination.

Steven Blakeney says he had to work in a hostile work environment. Authorities say toy rats were hung on Blakeney’s door after he started talking to federal agents.

In addition to the federal charges, two women are suing Blakeney, saying he drugged them at a bar and abducted them in November 2014.

Blakeney is accused of falsely arresting a candidate for Mayor of Pine Lawn.
