Michael Seyller, an East Dundee sergeant who has been stripped of his police powers for more than a year for undisclosed reasons, will no longer be part of the force, pending a vote on his request to collect a disability pension, officials said.

Seyller's hearing is 4:30 p.m. Dec. 3 at village hall. The five-member East Dundee Police Department Pension Board will conduct the hearing and decide on his application, said John Theis, the board's secretary.

"Barring some unusual questions or something that may pop up, I would foresee a vote that day," Theis said.

As part of a separation agreement between Seyller, 40, and the village, his employment status is tied to the pension vote, regardless of the vote's outcome. He has said he sustained several injuries while off duty.

Seyller, meanwhile, also has legal troubles that span two states.

Most recently, a Kane County prosecutor dropped a Carpentersville weapons charge against Seyller in September. That same month, Seyller was sentenced to supervision and community service after he was found guilty of violating an order of protection in Arlington Heights.

His other legal issues involve a Carpentersville domestic battery case scheduled for trial Dec. 10, as well as an aggravated battery case in Adams County, Wis., in which he is accused of beating a patron during a bar fight. That case has an April 3 trial date.
