About this Article

The village of Oak Brook had sufficient grounds to strip Drew Peterson's son of his police badge based on his conduct after his father's fourth wife went missing in 2007, a judge has ruled. DuPage County Judge Terence Sheen upheld Stephen Peterson's firing in a written decision Monday, saying it was "in no way arbitrary or unreasonable for (the village) to conclude that Officer Peterson exhibited conduct incompatible with continued service as a police officer."
