LAFAYETTE -

A Lafayette resident has filed a recall petition against City Marshal Brian Pope, whose first term has included ethical issues, a taxpayer-funded public-records lawsuit and now ongoing felony prosecution.

The Secretary of State's Office on Tuesday endorsed the recall petition, which means its organizers have six months to get signatures from a third of Lafayette registered voters before the governor calls a recall election. That adds up to at least 27,500 signatures.

Check out the timeline below for a rundown of what led city residents to seek a recall.
