City Considers Under Fire Police Chief’s Fate

The City of Blakesburg is a community divided. The reason, a security video was taken in City Hall in April showing police chief Bob Lewis drawing his gun and pointing it in the direction of a city council member.

Then, last week, he pulled his gun again in a crowded city council meeting to show city leaders that, while it was loaded, there was no round in the chamber.

City council met Wednesday, but decided not to act on any type of discipline yet.

In this town of less than 300-people, it seems  everyone has an opinion on this. “I see both sides on that,” said Mayor Jason Myers. “And that’s why it’s such a tough decision to make because I understand what people are thinking as far as needing to get rid of him. But I also understand the other side where, you know, it’s small town politics.”

City council members will spend the next couple of weeks deciding the chief’s fate. The chief did not respond to our request for an interview.
