NEW MIAMI, OH (FOX19) -

The village of New Miami has fired its police chief.


Council voted 5-1 Wednesday night to terminate Chief Kenneth Cheek.


He's been on paid administrative leave since the beginning of the month when the village lost its insurance coverage.


Cheek was the target of an excessive force lawsuit in 2012.
