Former Oakley police chief fired after sex harassment claims: report

The police chief in Oakley has been fired after an investigation found evidence of sexual harassment.

The Bay Area News Group reports that an outside investigator found former Chief Dean Capelletti was accused of inappropriate touching, sexual remarks and more.

Capelletti was put on leave after the allegations last fall.

He was fired months later in November.
