Orlando police officer fired after allegations of misconduct

Posted: Updated:
ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

An Orlando police officer has been fired following an Internal Affairs investigation concerning allegations of misconduct. 

Grounds for the termination of Officer Danny Sidders were based on violations of regulations, including obedience to laws and standards of conduct, the department reports.

In January of 2012, Sidders was named in a domestic violence investigation which was later abandoned, because the victim refused to cooperate.  Sidders was jailed for short time but released.  He was re-arrested in November on similar allegations involving the same victim. 

"The Orlando Police Department relies heavily on the support and trust of our community, and will continue to be responsible in maintaining the integrity and reputation of all Orlando Police
Department employees," read a statement sent to FOX 35 issued by the department. 

Sidders' employment was terminated, effective 5 p.m. on Friday.  Prior to his firing, Sidders had been suspended without pay.
