STURGEON - A judge ordered the city of Sturgeon to reinstate Greg Halderman as its police chief, according to court documents. 

Circuit Judge Jeff Harris ruled Friday the city of Sturgeon did not comply with procedural requirements of a "contested case" when removing Halderman. 

Sturgeon's city council fired Halderman in 2017 for allegations of alcohol abuse and inappropriate behavior.

In his judgement, Harris ordered the city of Sturgeon to give Halderman back pay.
