Port St. Lucie police officer is facing termination

A Port St. Lucie police officer is facing termination.

Investigators spent several months talking to witnesses about an incident that happened last July at a Port St. Lucie sports bar.

That night, officer Hayley Nine was seen getting involved in a confrontation with a group at the bar.

On surveillance video, you can see the moments leading up to that argument.

Hayley is seen throwing ice at friends across the bar.

At one point, investigators say the ice hit another man who wasn't in her group and he got angry with the people throwing ice.

A fight broke out, and Hayley was seen trying to break it up.

One of the people involved says he was "battered" by Hayley and her friends.

Investigators found Hayley was "improper" and "immoral." They also say her story and witnesses' stories did not match up on several occasions.

Hayley has been with the Port St. Lucie Police Department for nearly a year, and is under probation until she reaches the year mark.

When she was sworn in to the department, she was said to be "a class leader and a recipient of the Warrior Award."

She started serving in the U.S. Army when she was 17-years-old, and spent time in Afghanistan.

She received a key to the city of Port St. Lucie for her time served in the military.

The department and Hayley both aren't commenting on the case.

The chief has asked for Hayley to be terminated.

She still has a few days to schedule a hearing to defend herself and try to save her job.

She's on paid administrative leave until an outcome is decided.
