Seven Broken Arrow police officers are under investigation for using guns with flashlights mounted on them. FOX23 has new details in this case and what punishment is planned for these officers.
It's a story we first told you about Wednesday.
Now, in a FOX23 exclusive, we're hearing from the attorney representing those officers in trouble.
FOX23 wanted to talk with the officers in question to see their side of the story.
First, we spoke with attorney Scott Wood Friday afternoon, who said that this appears to just be a big misunderstanding. However, it's also one that could have serious consequences if it's not resolved.
Wood said that he will be meeting with the Broken Arrow police chief and the city attorney on Monday to try and come to a resolution.
The issue came up after a supervisor noticed an officer using a weapon-mounted flashlight.
The department said although the lights are not specifically prohibited in the department's policy, altering weapons is not at the discretion of the officer.
"All of the officers have less than two years on and as you know, Chief Boggs came to Broken Arrow recently and he's expressed some changes that he wants made in the organization, but I don't think those made it through the policy making process," Wood said.
Wood said the officers had gone ahead and gotten their gun lights and were using them when a question came up about whether or not they had permission from the chief to do so.
Wood said that many senior officers in the department already use them.
