— Durham's emergency services department is in turmoil. Director Bill Colley and Radio Shop Manager John LeMay are both on administrative leave, reportedly for condoning a racially hostile environment.

Two radio shop employees claim their supervisors used racial slurs at work. A separate complaint was filed against LeMay with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Both complaints are under investigation.
