The Monticello, Utah, city council has fired Police Chief Kent Adair after his department refused to answer a 911 call about one of its officers. The estranged wife of Sgt. Cole Young called 911 to report he'd broken into her house and assaulted a man there. But when the dispatcher tried to get an officer to respond, they all declined. When the dispatcher called Adair about the issue, the two were recorded laughing about the matter. A San Juan County sheriff's deputy eventually answered the call. Young has been charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor assault.
