An internal investigation has cleared an Evansville police officer of any wrong doing in the traffic stop involving an off-duty Evansville firefighter.
That firefighter fired back Monday night on his Facebook page with some strong words. It's the same Facebook page he used to share his story that went viral.
"With social media being as big as it, our officers have to realize that is our new reality. Things that wouldn't have gone public until maybe after an investigation and someone was not happy with our findings, that stuff will be out there now for public opinion to come in before we're even given an opportunity to address it," said EPD Sgt. Jason Cullum.
The police department says Madison's complaint was based upon his opinion of the officer's communication skills and not his actions.
Madison told 14 News that he's praying about how to take the next step.
