UPDATE: Metro Homicide Commander suspended without pay

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The Metro Homicide Commander Tim Corbett has been suspended.

This action comes following the allegations that he threatened Officer Jack Stilp regarding the South Bend Police tape scandal.

In a meeting Wednesday morning, Metro Homicide's board decided that Corbett is not guilty of intimidation, but he is guilty of violating a policy that requires employees to be courteous and respectful.

Later on Wednesday afternoon, we found out Corbett's suspension will last five days and that he will not be paid during that time.

In the Disciplinary Action Notice, Prosecuting Attorney Michael Dvorak noted, "Commander Corbett's comments to Stilp were unprofessional in both the language and the tone he used. The language used was clearly inappropriate for a senior officer. The police officers serving in the CMHU come from the three largest police departments in bur County and are subordinate to Tim Corbett as Commander of that Unit. We further find it unprofessional for a senior officer in one law enforcement agency to berate a junior officer in another agency."
