GUTHRIE, Okla. – The push to put a high-profile police lieutenant back on the police force may have come to an end.

According to the Guthrie News Page, the City of Guthrie unanimously voted not to reinstate Lt. Mark Bruning.

Mark Bruning was accused of abusing his power when he had his wife’s ex-husband arrested.

In November, an arbitrator found Lt. Bruning should not have been terminated, but suspended without pay for 6 months.

Bruning’s attorney says the City of Guthrie owes Bruning 7 months of pay and his position back at Guthrie PD.

Lt. Bruning started working for the Guthrie Police Department in 1997.
