NEW BOSTON, TX (KSLA) - Give him back his gun and badge.

And do it without delay.

That's the message New Boston City Council members sent to their police chief Tuesday night.

The panel unanimously ordered Police Chief Tony King to reinstate Lt. Johnny Milwood.

Last month, King fired the veteran police officer who allegedly threatened to expose police misconduct.
