A Pendleton police officer who let an impaired driver drive himself home will not be fired by the department. Patrolman Mike
Moore was under investigation for stopping a man, who was high on prescription drugs, last November, and then letting him
go home. Before Moore could be fired by the Pendleton Public Safety Board, the 30-year police veteran submitted letters of
retirement. During a Thursday night meeting, the board voted not to pursue the firing because he is already off the force.
