Donnie Yarbrough

Fort Gibson Police Chief Donnie Yarbrough has been suspended with pay after allegations of sexual misconduct with a subordinate, according to officials familiar with the investigation.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has been called in to investigate.

“I can’t comment at this time,” Fort Gibson Town Attorney Larry Moore said just now.

Yarbrough has been the police chief in Fort Gibson since 2016. He is alleged to have had sexual relations in the past with the wife of a tow truck driver and a previous subordinate.
