A former Lowell police officer claims in a lawsuit that he was fired for refusing to carry out what he describes as an “unlawful ticket quota directive.” Kevin Knight, who was employed with the Lowell Police Department from March 12, 2007 to Jan. 23, 2012, made the allegations in his suit against the city of Lowell and the police department. The suit was filed Wednesday in Benton County Circuit Court by Knight’s attorneys Nick Churchill and Drew Ledbetter.
