PASCO, WA - A Pasco Police officer who is currently on paid administrative leave and waiting for a court date next month did not have permission to get another job.
Zach Fairley is accused of lying to officers about whether his cell phone was used to text with the same number that called in a bomb threat to CBC last summer.
Pasco Police said they just found out on Friday that Fairley had been hired at the Red Cross about a month ago and a source there tells NBC Right Now that some Red Cross employees are not happy about his hire.
The Red Cross also has Fairley on paid administrative leave while they investigate the situation.
The Pasco Police Department is investigation too. City employees need permission to work a second job and Fairley never asked.
Now Pasco Police will have to decide whether to do nothing, keep Fairley on paid administrative leave, or terminate his employment altogether.
They are supposed to have a decision by the end of the week.
