Officer Fired

BUNNELL, Fla. (AP) -- A Bunnell police officer has been fired
after officials say he abused department resources to stalk a
former girlfriend.

Officer Russell Nasby was fired Monday after a four-month
internal investigation. He had been on paid administrative leave
since Jan. 29.

A woman reported to the Flagler County Sheriff's Office in
October that Nasby and her had broken up in July, but that he was
stalking her on social networking sites, e-mail and by telephone.

The woman did not want to press charges, but the complaint
prompted Bunnell police to investigate. The department found the
Nasby used the state driver and vehicle database to get information
on the woman's new boyfriend. He also reportedly visited banned Web
sites on his work computer.
