Saying his constitutional rights were violated, the former head of the Elwood Parks Department has filed a lawsuit against the mayor of Elwood and several of his department heads.
Daniel Nance has sued Mayor Ron Arnold, Police Chief Sam Hanna, and the City of Elwood for firing him in 2012 over an allegation of missing funds.
The "Herald-Bulletin" reports that Nance was charged with several criminal counts after an Indiana State Board of Accounts audit accused him of official misconduct and failure to deposit public funds from the parks department.
But Nance was cleared of all charges late last year and has now filed suit, claiming his rights were violated.
