Cop fired after chasing governor's vehicle Published: July 18, 2013

A veteran Iowa criminal investigator said he was fired Wednesday in retaliation for complaining about the governor’s vehicle speeding through highway traffic, according to The Associated Press.

The AP reports Special Agent in Charge Larry Hedlund of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation said he learned of his termination during a meeting in Des Moines, following a 2 ½-month personnel investigation launched days after he filed an April 29 complaint about Gov. Terry Branstad’s SUV traveling 90 mph.
