Dismissed EPD officer suing to get his job back

Posted: Updated:

A veteran Evansville police officer, fired from the force, is now suing to try to get his job back.

The Police Merit Commission dismissed Corporal Mike Winters last month after being accused of inappropriately grabbing an EVSC student.  

A lawsuit filed on Friday claims there wasn't substantial evidence to support Winters' termination and states his discharge was in violation of rules and regulations.  

Winters was a 30-year member of the Evansville Police Department.
