Back On Duty

A former Dallas police officer that lost his job after he was accused of holding singer Steve Holy at gunpoint during an off-duty night of drinking in 2007 has been given permission to rejoin the force.

The Dallas city manager recently reversed the firing of officer Paul Loughridge, according to the Dallas Morning News, but he will have to re-enter the police academy to get his job back.

Loughridge was acquitted of a felony charge of aggravated assault against Holy last year.
