WILTON MANORS, Fla. - A South Florida police chief has been suspended for 30 days without pay for reportedly sending racist e-mails with his work account.
Wilton Manors city officials announced the suspension of Police Chief Richard Perez on Friday. The suspension will begin Monday.
According to a statement from the city, Perez acknowledged sending the e-mails and apologized for his actions.
City Manager Joseph Gallegos says the suspension is the most severe punishment the city can hand out, short of firing.
