• CMPD officer to appear before disciplinary board


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Rodney Monroe is expected to be at an officer's disciplinary hearing Thursday.

    Officer Mike Tinsley is a 16-year veteran of the department. CMPD suspended him last year, claiming he used company equipment for personal use.

    They said he ran gun serial numbers and driving record checks for family and friends.

    Tinsley, though, said the actions were justified.

    The civil service board will hear arguments from attorneys on both sides Thursday and then will decide if Tinsley can keep his job.

    He's still officially employed but has been out of work without pay for a year.
