GILBERTON, PA – The suspension of a Schuylkill County police chief was extended indefinitely Friday. Gilberton Chief Mark Kessler is accused of posting online videos in which he fired borough-owned automatic weapons while shouting obscenities.
The Gilberton Borough Council had been scheduled to hold a disciplinary hearing but had to postpone it because of a scheduling conflict, Kessler’s attorney said.
Attorney Joseph Nahas said Kessler’s disciplinary hearing will most likely be held next week. The indefinite suspension is expected to remain in place until both sides can meet.
Nahas and Kessler himself have both said they expect the chief to be fired.
