There was a time when sergeant Leland Terrell was on top of his game, he's with the Mobile Police Department for years.
He received the Alabama Attorney General's top award back in 2001. It's an award he picked up after being shot multiple times while trying to arrest a suspected drug dealer in the Roger Williams Housing Community.
However, sometimes the bad outweighs the good.
"We have removed the sergeant from services with Mobile PD," said Chief Micheal T. Williams.
On January 20th a complaint was filed against the officer after a customer at Waffle House said the Sgt drew his gun in the restaurant while intoxicated and off duty.
"We cannot have officers in the public, intoxicated or under the influence, displaying weapons in such a wreckless manner," said Williams.
An internal investigation was launched and after reviewing the evidence, Chief Williams decided to make his move.
"Am I disappointed? Certainly I am. This is a veteran police officer, a sergeant, a supervisor, a leader in the precinct," said the chief.
Mobile Police say they encourage their officers to wear their weapons while off duty, but not while consuming alcohol.
