"I believe the arbitrator, Mr.Bowden, made grievous mistakes and assumptions that lead to the decision ordering the reinstatement of officer Jeff Edwards.The same grievous mistakes occurred in an earlier decision to reinstate.......an officer I fired for a DUI. She was later arrested after causing damage to several others' vehicles, after the arbitrator made a similar decision to reinstate. I will be looking at my options for challenging this decision." 3 3 Tarik... How soon will he Edwards be back on the street?
