Eureka Police Chief Garr Nielsen, one of the five finalists for the Bend Police Chief position was fired from his job Friday, reports the Contra Costa Times. The report says he was fired without cause and given five minutes to collect some personal belongings and change out his uniform, and he was escorted out of the building.

Eureka City Council members and other officials would not comment on the reason for the sudden termination, but recently he was lauded for his work and at least a dozen citizens addressed the Council supporting Nielsen. Nielsen was informed earlier this week that he was eliminated from contention for the Bend Police Chief position.
