TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - Charges against a Tallahassee Police Department Sergeant have been dropped after he was accused of soliciting a prostitute.

In March of this year, Brian Davis was caught at the Day's Inn on Apalachee Parkway with a known prostitute. Following his arrest, Davis was put on paid administrative leave pending an internal affairs investigation.

The internal affairs investigation uncovered three determining factors that ultimately led to Davis being fired. Those factors were "rules of conduct in violation of G.O. 46", violation of law or rules, and insubordination.

Authorities say the main factor for his dismissal was insubordination because Davis refused to cooperate with the investigation. The Tallahassee Police Department explains that as an officer, Davis was required to participate in any part or process of the investigation.

The charges brought on by the State Attorney's Office were dropped Wednesday morning, six days after Davis was fired from TPD.

Davis does still have a chance to appeal the police department's decision to fire him.
