MIDLAND - A Midland Police officer stripped of his badge.

28-year-old Andrew Lowe was fired last Friday.

The officer was involved in an ATV accident on September 5th on Fairgrounds Road.

Because Lowe was injured in the wreck, policy required him to take a drug test.

Police say the results violated the Midland Police Department Drug and Alcohol Policy.

Lowe has 48 hours to appeal the decision.
