Police chief placed on indefinite suspension for online video

Posted: Updated:

GILBERTON, Pa. (AP) - A northeastern Pennsylvania police chief has been placed on indefinite suspension for online videos in which he fired borough-owned automatic weapons while shouting obscenities.

The Gilberton Borough Council voted Friday night to extend Chief Mark Kessler's unpaid suspension indefinitely.

Kessler's disciplinary hearing had been planned for Friday but was postponed because of a scheduling conflict. He said he expected his suspension would be extended.

Kessler's pro-gun videos have garnered hundreds of thousands of views online. They show him shouting about the Second Amendment and liberals while spraying gun fire.
