Gladewater Police Officer Seeks Reinstatement

A Gladewater police officer, fired after playing dominos is asking to be reinstated, so he can quit. Jason Weeks was fired last month after a citizen complained about him playing dominos at a local meeting place while on duty.

Weeks claims he was on his lunch break when he was playing dominos. Through his attorney, he is seeking three months severance pay and wants to be reinstated so he can officially resign. The department has already replaced him.

The reinstatement is under consideration.
