THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) – Thomasville A 911 dispatcher in Thomas County was fired for fighting on the job.   Sheletha Foster was fired after fighting with co-worker Patrick Slaughter.

Investigators say Foster asked Slaughter to cover her radio while she went on break. She says he ignored her, so she went to his desk to switch the radios and, she says, he hit her on the arm.

She says she then grabbed his headset. They had to be separated by a co-worker. Foster was fired. Slaughter was not disciplined.

"In regards to the incident that occurred Friday night between two employees here at 911, it is still under investigation. It's a personnel matter and I'm unable at this time to make any comment," said Ann Powell Thomas Co. 911 Director.

No criminal charges have been filed against Slaughter.
