Two state troopers from the Cheboygan post have lost their jobs for poaching deer while on duty.

Earlier, Jeff Hadley was sentenced to four days in jail for shooting a buck with his hunting rifle Nov. 12 while on patrol in Cheboygan County's Benton Township. Don Bolen received a two-day jail sentence.

Both apologized during their sentencings.

The Cheboygan Daily Tribune now reports the troopers the two have lost their jobs while awaiting arbitration.

Detective Sgt. Christopher Luty is vice president of the Michigan State Police Troopers Association and says the discipline isn't official until after the troopers' arbitration hearings.
