Police chief reinstated and then put on leave

CRAIG BEACH, Ohio (WKBN) – Ousted Craig Beach Police Chief Joe Borosky was back on the job for less than a day before he was put on administrative leave.

A judge ordered village officials to reinstate Borosky as of July 1. They did and then immediately put him on paid administrative leave.

Borosky was fired last year after being caught on dash-cam video allegedly attacking a woman. He was then accused of lying about the incident during his disciplinary hearing.

In an April ruling, Mahoning County Common Pleas Judge Lou D’Apolito said village council improperly fired Borosky because they failed to go through the correct procedures when voting on whether to fire him.

Borosky filed the lawsuit seeking reinstatement to his job and back pay.

At the time, Village Solicitor Gary Van Brocklin said he would appeal any ruling against the village. When asked if Borosky would be reinstated he said: “He’s not coming back here, no matter what.”

Borosky’s attorney said the village must reinstate him with back pay.

No further action will take place until Brocklin can meet with Craig Beach Village Council at the next scheduled meeting July 9 at 7 p.m.
