COLUMBUS, Miss (WTVA) -- The Columbus City Council has voted to suspend a city employee for 30 days.

The decision came during Tuesday's council meeting.

City spokesman Joe Dillon would not reveal the name of the employee or go into specifics as to what led to the disciplinary action.

He would only say the suspension was the result of "conduct unbecoming an officer."
