DUCHESNE COUNTY, Utah (AP) - A former Duchesne County jail officer is suing his former employer, claiming he was harassed and wrongfully terminated after reporting two co-workers for wearing prison property as Halloween costumes.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1BsIcTS ) that Brady Davis says he went to human resources after seeing social media pictures of the officers dressed in jail jumpsuits. One wore a green suicide smock and pretended to hang himself.

Davis says the county dismissed his report, and that he was then harassed for months. He was fired one week before he was going to resign.

He accuses the sheriff’s office of violating the Utah Whistleblower’s Act and is suing for defamation. He wants his job back, lost wages, benefits and monetary damages.

Duchesne County officials did not immediately have comment.
