One Dallas PD officer fired, another suspended

One Dallas police officer was fired and another suspended on Wednesday by Chief David Brown.

Senior Corporal Marqueon Skinner was fired for an arrest in June on charges of soliciting a prostitute.

Police said Skinner, an 11-year veteran of the force, met a woman online and arranged to pay her for sex. Police were called after Skinner said the woman robbed him at gunpoint.

In a separate case, the chief suspended a sergeant for 30 days for violating vehicle policy.

Police said Sergeant Ramon Gonzalez bumped a vehicle during a pursuit to force it off the road. He also violated policy by not wearing a body microphone.

Both Sergeant Gonzalez and Sr. Cpl. Skinner can appeal the rulings.
