GILBERTON, Pa. (AP) - The lawyer for a northeastern Pennsylvania police chief suspended for posting videos in which he fired borough-owned automatic weapons while shouting obscenities says his client's disciplinary hearing is postponed.
Joseph Nahas says a scheduling conflict means that Chief Mark Kessler's disciplinary hearing won't be held Friday. He says it'll most likely be held next week. Nahas and Kessler himself have both said they expect the chief to be fired.
Kessler's pro-gun videos have garnered hundreds of thousands of views online. They show him shouting about the Second Amendment and liberals while spraying machine-gun fire.
Friday was supposed to be the last day of Kessler's 30-day suspension over what the Gilberton council has said was unauthorized use of the weapons. Nahas says Kessler has agreed that his suspension will be extended.
