Allentown cop fired by city council for public drunkenness

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - An Allentown cop who plead guilty to public drunkenness was fired by Allentown City Council Wednesday night.

Jeffrey Rush plead guilty earlier this month to charges stemming from a Sept. 23, 1013 incident.

Rush, while off duty, vandalized vehicles and window air conditioning units after leaving Candida's Bar in the 200 block of North Twelfth Street in Allentown. 

Council made no comment before voting. They did, however, have an executive session before the public council meeting.
