BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - A meeting of the Bossier City Municipal Fire and Police Civil Service Board ended with no result, as the City of Bossier City sued the board.

The meeting held on the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 1 was to determine if Mayor Tommy Chandler violated rules regarding former Bossier City Police Chief Shane McWilliams reassignment.

In July 2021, city officials confirmed McWilliams was placed on paid administrative leave pending an internal affairs investigation regarding certain policy violations. The city did not specify the reasons behind the reassignment or the specific reason for the internal investigation.
