BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – A Bridgeport police officer, who had been fired and then re-hired, has been promoted to sergeant, according to a report in the ctpost.

Christine Burns was ousted in 2011 in connection with a cover-up of a car crash involving another police officer, who also happened to be her boyfriend, the ctpost story said, citing a police commission report.

A state arbitrator ordered Burns, then a lieutenant, reinstated, but she was demoted to patrol officer, the ctpost reported.

Neither she, nor the other officer, Peter Billings, were charged in the case, though Billings was suspended for a year, the ctpost story said.
