Gilberton Police Chief Mark Kessler became an internet star thanks to a profanity laced video of him shooting off automatic weapons.
He posted several videos of himself this summer which caused quite the controversy.
Now tonight, the Gilberton Borough Council met and effectively fired him.I
In a 6 to 1 vote, the council voted to keep Kessler on suspension and being the process of termination.
Meanwhile, Kessler and his attorney say the town has been looking for ways to get rid of him, after he posted the videos, which garned national attention.
“One accusation is neglect of duties, whereby they said he didn`t file reports in a timely fashion. Another one was that he mishandled borough property, whereby he didn’t hand in the guns to the borough” said Joe Nahas, Kessler’s attorney.
Kessler says he turned in the guns to a federal agency.
He has the right to appeal the council’s decision, and his attorney says they plan to do just that.
