A former Metropolitan Detention Center corrections officer who was fired for using excessive force will not get his job back.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, an independent arbitrator decided Eric Allen’s termination stands. The arbitrator made the decision after looking at two cases where Allen was accused of pepper spraying inmates while they were restrained.

Allen is still pursuing a lawsuit against the county, claiming the county retaliated against his former co-workers for supporting him.
