DARE officer discharged from force

HAMPTON — In a brief three-line letter, Town Manager James Barrington upheld Police Chief William Wrenn’s decision to discharge officer Aaron Pickering for cause.  Wrenn had decided to fire the former DARE officer over an incident where police had found Pickering at the home of a student, after he had been allegedly drinking.

According to Wrenn, the former officer had lied several times to the Chief, when explaining the matter.  Pickering’s lawyer says the firing will be appealed.
