LAHARPE LaHarpe City Council members unanimously voted to fire Police Chief Ashley Wright Thursday, two days following her arrest for interfering with law enforcement.
Council members said nothing publicly they discussed the matter in executive session for 30 minutes prior to their vote although Wright addressed a small audience that had gathered in City Hall to watch the proceedings.
Her arrest stemmed from her refusal to allow deputies to enter their home in the old LaHarpe Methodist Episcopal Church in order to arrest her husband on a warrant issued out of Haskell County, Texas.
