A former Janesville Fire Department employee alleges the fire chief and other fire department employees lied to police that he "might be mentally unstable and dangerous," according to complaints filed with the Janesville Police and Fire Commission. The former employee, Donald "Jeff" Bowen, has filed three charges of malfeasance in public office against Fire Chief Randy Banker and one each against Lt. Paul VerHalen and Fire Marshal Sue North. The commission will address the charges behind closed doors at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. Banker and other city officials said Friday they could not comment on the complaints.
