DAPHNE, Ala. (WALA) – A Captain with the Daphne Police Department has been fired, according to the city’s Mayor, Dane Haygood.
Haygood confirmed Monday, June 23, that Captain Danny Bell had been terminated after he was arrested Thursday, June 5, for allegedly harassing a woman with phone calls and texts.
Bell was charged with third degree domestic violence for harassing communications.
Haygood said the termination is a result of “city policies and procedures.”
Haygood told FOX10 that Bell has filed an appeal of the termination, and Haygood said the city will go through the proper motions of addressing that appeal.
In the meantime, Bell’s case has not been settled in court, and the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating the allegations.
