The officer that was in charge of the MPD escort that Charlie Sheen received when he performed in D.C. says he has been demoted.
The commander of the special operations division for D.C.'s police department says he's been demoted, according to an Associated Press report.
Commander Hilton Burton told the AP he's been demoted to the rank of captain and transferred into the medical division, after he was told the department has lost faith in his ability to lead.
Burton testified in June at a D.C. Council hearing about police escorts for celebrities. He said the special operations division routinely escorts celebrities, including when police Chief Cathy Lanier headed the division. Lanier denies approving escorts for celebrities.
She says in a statement Burton's demotion was "based on a review of command decisions, including several critical incidents."
