BUFFALO, Mo. -- The City of Buffalo fired Police Chief Sam Hartsell this week.
KSPR News obtained a copy of the termination letter. In it, Hartsell is advised his employment with the city will be terminated at 12:01 p.m. on Tuesday.
Alderman Jess Stafford confirmed Hartsell was no longer police chief but said he hadn't seen the letter, which was signed by Mayor Andrew Mead.
When asked why Hartsell was fired, Stafford referred us to the city attorney or the mayor but said he expects some litigation in the future.
