The Oklahoma City Fraternal Order of Police says top officers within the Oklahoma City Police Department have accused Chief Bill Citty of threatening some of his top deputies.

The FOP says four chief deputies claim they're owed overtime, but city officials say they're exempt. According to a copy of the complaint filed against Citty, the chief confronted the four deputies for trying to get that pay. Citty reportedly told the deputies that if they filed a grievance, the city manager would retaliate against them.

Ten majors were also reportedly upset about not getting overtime pay, but did not join the grievance with the deputy chiefs.

Oklahoma City's auditor has launched an ethics investigation.

Chief Citty has not commented on the allegations.

The FOP says on Tuesday, it will be going over two revisions for this year's collective bargaining agreement.
