Bodybuilding police officer sacked over steroid claims

Nov 22, 2018

A police officer suspected of using anabolic steroids to improve his physique has been sacked. PC Lewis Jackson refused to take a drugs test, insisting his newfound bulk was the result of hard training. A disciplinary hearing was told Facebook photos of the officer "seemed to indicate a disparity in his early and current physique". He was dismissed without notice after a Lincolnshire Police panel found him guilty of gross misconduct. Gainsborough-based Mr Jackson was investigated after a colleague reported suspicions to a chief inspector. Mr Jackson resigned on 9 October, the day after being asked to take a drugs test, the hearing was told. After refusing to give a sample, he was told declining the test would be treated the same as failing it.
