CHESAPEAKE (AP) -- A former auxiliary police officer is suing Chesapeake for back pay for work that the police department says was voluntary.
The police department says auxiliary officers don't receive pay.
The Virginian-Pilot reports that Wayne Bailey filed the federal discrimination lawsuit earlier this month against the city.
According to the lawsuit, Bailey was let go in February following an annual physical examination several months earlier.
The lawsuit says Bailey was told he was disqualified because of a blood thinner he was taking. He says he acknowledged being treat4d with the blood thinner when he took his entrance physical.
City attorney Jan Proctor says the city didn't do anything wrong.
The lawsuit also seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.
