William Wingate, a 70 year old black man, was arrested by Officer Cynthia Whitlatch because he was walking while in possession of a golf club in July 2014. It was the first time he had been arrested. He was using a golf club as a cane.
"Whitlatch claimed that Wingate swung the club at her, even though there was no indication of that on her patrol car’s dashcam.
The charges against Wingate were later dismissed, but several other behavioral complaints about Whitlatch surfaced including one based on racially-charged Facebook posts."
And now she can't figure out why she's been fired.
