EAST HAVEN, Conn. — A police officer has been fired following a unanimous vote by a Connecticut town’s board of police commissioners.

WTNH-TV reports the vote took place during an Oct. 16 meeting. The East Haven Police Department says the female detective was involved in an “off-duty personal matter.”

Meeting minutes show four department policies were violated, and a fellow police officer was assaulted.

The board issued three votes in favor of the officer’s termination, with one member abstaining from voting.
