LUTHER, Okla. - New details in the dismissal case against a Luther police officer are being released.

Sgt. Michael Oliver met Wednesday night with Chief of Police, David Randall, one-on-one, in a nearly 40-minute closed-door meeting at the Luther Police Station.

Oliver was put on administrative leave November 15 for breaking department rules and regulations.

"Tonight, me and Sgt. Oliver got together, we went over the rules and regulation that we felt were broken. We talked about it, he invoked his right to go in front of the appeals board and we will handle it accordingly," said Chief Randall.

After the meeting was over, Oliver declined to talk to News 4 as he made his way to his car.

Oliver did say in a Facebook message Tuesday, "I can say this, that what they are saying are lies and false information."

The allegations of wrongdoing against the highly respected 10-year Luther police officer are still not publicly known.

Tuesday night, a hearing board was selected in case Oliver did invoke his right to the open hearing.

Chief Randall says the public will be notified when the meeting is scheduled. It will be open to all who want to attend.

Whether Oliver will be officially dismissed or reinstated will be determined at that meeting.

A date and time for the hearing has not been announced.
