Pasco City Manager Gary Crutchfield fires Pasco Police officer that is facing criminal charges.

Zach Fairley is being charged with making false or misleading statements to a public servant and other charges of soliciting a prostitute.

Pasco Police Chief Bob Metzger asked city personnel to fire Fairley a few days ago.

Prior to yesterday, Fairley was on paid leave since the beginning of the year.

During that time, Fairley accepted a new job at the American Red Cross and Metzger said failing to inform the city of his new job is a violation of city policy and they are looking into the situation.

Crutchfield said that issue will also be dealt with.
