Associated Press Release

BRYANT, Ark. (AP) -- The police chief in Bryant has been suspended for five days for seeking reimbursement for a steak dinner purchased at a Florida strip club.

Bryant Mayor Jill Dabbs says Chief Mark Kizer will begin serving his unpaid suspension next week. This week, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported that Kizer and school resource officer Lee Ledbetter were each reimbursed for steak dinners from a restaurant connected to an upscale strip club in Orlando, Fla.

They were in Florida for a work conference on school resource officers.

The newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/19DwDrH ) that the council also approved spending $20,000 for an audit of its city finances, including travel expenses.

Kizer had no immediate comment Thursday night but said earlier that he and Ledbetter visited the steakhouse at the recommendation of their hotel concierge.
