CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WTRF) — The alleged West Virginia State Police whistleblower, Joseph Comer, has been fired, according to the West Virginia State Police.

Comer was served with a Notice of Intent to Discipline on Tuesday, the WVSP said in a press release. The notice details the West Virginia State Police’s intent to terminate Joseph Comer’s employment with the department.

Comer turned himself in last week after a warrant was issued for his arrest on a bond violation.

Comer has been on administrative leave with the WVSP since February 23, 2023 when he was initially arrested for those charges.
