INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Jan. 3, 2014)– A suspended Greenwood police officer did not fulfill his agreement with a Johnson County judge.

A source tells FOX59 News that suspended Greenwood Police officer Joey Rodriguez did not enter an alcohol rehabilitation program Thursday, after he promised a Johnson County judge he would.

Rodriguez was arrested after a New Year’s Eve brawl that injured several people, including two police officers.

As part of Rodriguez’ agreement to be released from the Johnson County jail, the officer said he would seek alcohol treatment.

The Greenwood Police Merit Board meets at 4 p.m. on Monday.

He has until then to resign, or he will be fired.

As part of his agreement, Rodriguez was also ordered to have no contact with any of the people he fought with at the New Year’s Eve party.
