Kennesaw Mayor Derek Easterling told Channel 2 he was shocked when he found out.
“‘Are you kidding me?’ was the first thing that popped up in my mind,” Easterling said.
Easterling said McMillian had been a great employee since he started his job in March, but he wouldn’t tolerate this behavior and fired him Tuesday before he was arrested, Channel 2 reported. His probationary period was scheduled to end next month.
“He misrepresented his position,” Easterling said. “He misrepresented who he is as a person. That bothers me at a different level — not just as mayor, but as a citizen.”
McMillian didn’t respond to the news station’s request for comment, and the Subway franchise owner and employees would not comment on the incident.
