The Eunice City Council voted Tuesday night to terminate one of two Eunice police officers who were arrested last month for failing to assist their fellow officer when he was attacked.
According to the mayor of Eunice, the council voted based on the recommendation of Eunice Police Chief Ronald Dies, who said that Officers Tayla Fruge and Jade Weaver stood by and watched as the attack took place.
The council voted to terminate Fruge, but did not vote to terminate Weaver, who had been on the job for almost two months when the incident took place.
Fruge and Weaver were charged with malfeasance in office.
