Former Clayton County Officer Matthew Whitton has filed an appeal of his August termination.
Chief Jeff Turner says he fired Whitton because the officer ruined his credibility when he and Rick Dyer sought media attention, saying they found the body of the legendary man-ape.
“He’s been an embarrassment. This is basically a disgrace to be in law enforcement. You must have integrity. He has none,” said Turner when he fired Whitton.
