BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A fired Baton Rouge police officer accused of making a bogus 911 call and illegally accessing a criminal history database is trying to get his job back.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1fr6QdQ) the former corporal, Christopher M. Robinson, was terminated in April after internal investigators determined he ditched an extra-duty job at a hospital and called 911 anonymously early one morning in December. He allegedly told dispatchers there was a fight going on between two adults outside a Baton Rouge home.

In fact, there was nothing happening outside the home.

Robinson is appealing his termination by the Police Department. An appeal hearing before the city’s Municipal Fire and Police Civil Service Board is set for Aug. 20.
