2 former Capitol police appealing job terminations denied request

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

The former State Capitol Police acting chief and a sergeant appealing their terminations had their request denied by Secretary Kieran Shanahan Wednesday.

Antonio "Tony" Asion and Sergeant Benjamin Franklin were fired after an investigation into secondary employment. 

According to DPS policy obtained by WNCN, secondary employment is a side job that requires prior approval.

The policy says "failure to provide accurate information regarding my secondary employment may be considered unacceptable personal conduct that could subject me to discipline up to and including dismissal."

Last month Gov. Pat McCrory appointed former Clayton Police Chief, Glenn Allen, to take over as chief for the State Capitol Police.

The State Capitol Police provide security for public officials, state employees and visitors within the North Carolina State Government Complex and at state-owned properties.
