A Montana Highway Patrol trooper alleges former chief Kenton Hickethier passed him over for promotions and tried to embarrass him in public after he complained about Hickethier's conduct at a training conference in Phoenix.
The Great Falls Tribune reports the Department of Labor on Wednesday released the Human Rights complaint Trooper Glenn Quinnell of Glendive filed in July.
Quinnell's complaint says Hickethier sexually harassed women at the 2011 conference and made a racist comment about Quinnell having dinner with at a black trooper from another state. Quinnell also alleged Hickethier ordered troopers to arrest people if they even suspected they were in the country illegally.
Hickethier resigned on Aug. 30 after the Department of Justice found two reprimands in his file as it prepared a response to Quinnell's Human Rights complaint.
