WALKER COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

A former Walker County deputy is appealing his termination at a personnel hearing Monday.

Adam Hadder worked for 15 years as a deputy and narcotics agent and was fired in September 2012 by Sheriff John Mark Tirey after three citizen complaints.

Hadder is accused of having an anger problem, showing a lack of judgement in uniform and verbally assaulting and unlawfully arresting citizens.

One of those citizens, Gerald Garrison, a process server, testified Monday night. He said he was going to serve a subpoena at Hadder's home in July 2012. Garrison said that Hadder verbally assaulted and unlawfully arrested him and claims that Hadder even had his truck towed.

Gayle Gear, Hadder's attorney, said Monday that his termination should be dismissed because it was unjust and allegations against him weren't properly investigated.

The Civil Service Board hearing begain around 5:20 p.m. and ended around 9 p.m. The board will reconvene next Monday to continue this case.
