Arnold Police Chief Files Harassment Claim With State

Chief Robert Shockey, who is also serving as acting city administrator, filed the complaint for alleged retaliation attempts by two city councilmembers, Arnold's city attorney says.

Arnold Police Chief/Acting City Administrator Robert Shockey has filed a harrasment complaint with the state alleging two city councilmembers have retaliated against him.

City Attorney Bob Sweeney said the claim, filed with the Missouri Commission on Human Rights, involves Ward 1 Councilwoman Doris Borgelt and Ward 4 Councilman Ken Moss. Sweeney said he could not comment further because it is a personnel matter.

Shockey had no comment on Wednesday.

This is the second time in recent months a city employee has filed a complaint with the division. In October, Susie Boone, the city's parks and recreation director, went public alleging Moss had harassed her for more than two years.

Shockey became chief of the Arnold Police Department in 2001. He was appointed to acting city administrator after Matt Unrein, former city administrator, resigned from the position in June 2012.

Patch will provide more information as it becomes available.

While we're off topic, Bill, how about a comment on the Shaun Missey situation? You have a special perspective to offer, since you were late on your taxes in 2011 and 2009 but got to stay on the ballot.

The "emergency" meeting was supposed to be about paying necessary bills, which took care of that "fiduciary responsibility". And they WERE taken care of! There was the necessary quorum for that and I don't fault the others for having prior commitments. Several council members had previously told the city that Monday was not workable, and made OTHER suggestions to make sure necessary business was taken care of in a timely fashion. Both Michelle (my wife) and Mr Moss had previous engagements also, but we canceled ours and Mr Moss made time from his. It was NOT the time and place to "hurriedly" discuss important "non time dependent" issues behind the backs of the citizens of Arnold, as the meeting needed to be over in an hour to accommodate evening court.. Allow for that to happen at "regularly" scheduled meeting so the people of Arnold you represent can attend and be involved, or at least hear in person, council actions.

It occurs to me that Doris loudly promulgates that Sunshine is the Best Disinfectant. It seems to me she is getting sun-burned.
