An arbitrator determined a Broward Sheriff's sergeant fired because he sat in a parked car during a 2018 mass shooting at a high school should get his job back.

The arbitrator dismissed the case against Brian Miller, saying his due process rights were violated when he was fired.

A state commission investigating the shooting said Miller was the first supervisor on the scene as the gunman was inside a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School building.

But he remained in his car, putting on a bulletproof vest. Miller earned more than $137,000 in 2018 and the arbitrator determined he should receive back pay
