LAFAYETTE - The Municipal Fire and Police Civil Service Board voted Tuesday to overturn the termination of one officer who tested positive for steroids and uphold the termination of a second officer who also tested positive for the drug, according to one the men's attorneys.
John Keith Richard and Trampus Gaspard were fired from the Lafayette City Police Department last year after positive drug tests in an internal affairs investigation that focused on alleged connections the officers had to a drug suspect.
