An Iowa investigator who complained about the governor's speeding vehicle has been fired following a disciplinary review.
Attorney Tom Duff says Special Agent Larry Hedlund of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation learned of his termination Wednesday.
The 25-year veteran initiated an April 26th pursuit of an SUV that zipped past him at 90 mph in northern Iowa.
Hedlund says he had tensions with his bosses, but "everything changed" after he filed the April 29 complaint about Gov. Terry Branstad's SUV.
A trooper let the vehicle go after learning it was another trooper who was driving Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds.
Hedlund was placed on leave May 1st pending an investigation of alleged rule violations, including operating his vehicle on a vacation day and being disrespectful during a conference call.
His attorney, Tom Duff, said he will soon file a lawsuit alleging wrongful termination in Polk County.
