LAS VEGAS, NV –  A former Las Vegas deputy fire chief is in line to get a big check to settle a discrimination lawsuit.

The Las Vegas City Council will vote Wednesday on the $500,000 settlement for Ken Riddle, who was fired 6 years ago, after being accused of smoking on the job and misusing credit cards.

Riddle denied the charges and claimed he was fired because he was white and that then-chief David Washington wanted more black employees in top positions.

A federal jury sided with Riddle. So far, the city has not commented publicly.
