SEATTLE (AP) - Authorities say a Snoqualmie police officer has been suspended for 20 days without pay for having an affair with another officer’s wife.

The Seattle Times reports (http://goo.gl/JSbznB ) Officer Nick Hogan was disciplined for conduct unbecoming an officer in January after an internal investigation. Records say the woman involved was a volunteer with the department at the time.

Hogan was fired by Tukwila city officials in 2011 after two lawsuits alleging he used excessive force cost the city more than $425,000 in settlements and attorneys’ fees.

In a response to the disciplinary decision written by his attorney, Hogan said the city was punishing him for his private life and over media accounts of his troubles in Tukwila.

Hogan will return to his job March 10. He has been with Snoqualmie police since 2013.
