Miami Police Chief Fired Over Disobeying Orders

Monday, 12 Sep 2011 02:20 PM

 

MIAMI — Miami's police chief who has clashed with the mayor, prosecutors and the city manager has been fired for failing to follow orders.

The city commission voted 3-2 Monday to oust Miguel Exposito. A majority agreed that Exposito ignored direct orders from the city manager not to take certain personnel actions against top executives at the 1,100-officer force.

Exposito was initially suspended last week.

He has also been criticized for a series of fatal police shootings of African-American suspects and has become embroiled in a high-profile spat with Mayor Tomas Regalado over raids on video gaming parlors. There have also been clashes with top Miami prosecutors.
