      Rio Hondo police chief fired

      Only one city commissioner sided with Martinez.

      The Rio Hondo City Commission voted to fire longtime police chief Sam Martinez.

      The commission met on Thursday where they heard from Rio Hondo residents on the issue.

      Martinez is accused of "double-dipping" for working as a security consultant for Pizza Hut while on the clock.

      Both Martinez and his supporters say that the move was retaliation for an investigation against City Manager Arturo Prida.
