Former Sun Valley Chief of Police Cameron Daggett has been paid $11,668 by the city as part of a termination settlement. In return, Daggett said he has agreed not to sue the city and not to work for the city again.
In July, Daggett said he was forced out of his job as Sun Valley police chief after 26 years on the force. Daggett had open-heart surgery in January and was on medical leave for about six months. He said that he had been under great amounts of stress at work.
"My stress was induced by City Hall administration," said Daggett. "A year ago, I was on no prescription drugs. Then six months ago, I had a life-threatening event."
But this morning's Idaho Mountain Express reports that Daggett said he gave up his right to sue when he accepted the cash settlement.
"The money they gave me was to sign that agreement to give up certain rights," Daggett told the Mountain Express. "I just wanted to be done with it."
Daggett and his wife are currently living in Eagle.
