Clyde police chief suspended for unknown reasons

Written by 

Clyde Police Chief Gerard Ball was suspended last Friday for five days without pay until the town board was able to meet and further discuss his employment status. 

The Clyde town board will hold a specially-scheduled meeting Wednesday, Sept. 4, but discussions about Ball would be held behind closed doors due to personnel confidentiality issues, according to town officials.

Ball was named police chief just over a year ago in July 2012. Ironically, Ball’s predecessor — Chief Derek Dendy — was put on 30 days of unpaid suspension before ultimately being fired for misconduct last January.

Ball was previously the chief of the Cherokee Alcohol Law Enforcement division under the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indian.
