Tulsa police posted an update on the media portal on Thursday night saying Lewandowski is no longer employed by the Tulsa Police Department.
"Chief Franklin and the men and women of the Tulsa Police Department are steadfastly committed to meeting the highest expectations of integrity.
The public has a right to expect us to police ourselves when those expectations are not met. Monday, the Tulsa Police Department arrested Lieutenant Tim Lewandowski on one felony count of intimidating a state's witness. This new charge is related to an existing Tulsa Police Department investigation regarding misdemeanor allegations against Lewandowski of domestic violence and violating a protective order.
Lewandowski has been on leave without pay from the Tulsa Police Department since March 26th of 2019 and as of January 28, 2021 no longer employed by the Tulsa Police Department. Like all defendants in court cases he is presumed innocent."
Court records show his first arraignment for attempted intimidation of a witness takes place March 9. His second arraignment for assault and battery and third arraignment for violation of a protective order takes place March 11.
