NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — Cash-strapped North Las Vegas might have to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in back pay and legal costs to a police officer fired in 2007 after a complaint about a parking ticket.

Attorney Adam Levine tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://bit.ly/Yjtqw3 ) he thinks the final award to Timothy Frabbiele from a Local Government Employee Management Relations Board ruling could be $500,000.

The board ruled Thursday that the city violated labor practices by blocking Frabbiele from contesting his firing.

It ruled that North Las Vegas must reinstate Frabbiele at least to paid administrative leave.

A city attorney says the city is reviewing its legal options.

Frabbiele was fired after less than a year on the job following an internal investigation of a ticket issued to an acquaintance's estranged husband.
