SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - An open records request revealed the reasons behind the firing of Shepherdsville Police Chief Doug Puckett.

In a letter to the chief dated March 4, Shepherdsville's mayor, Scott Ellis, said Puckett drove his wife around in his police cruiser while she was wearing a political campaign shirt. The letter also said he allowed campaign workers to use the Sherpherdsville Police Command Post, failed to set an example to his department and violated standard operating procedures.
