Bellevue's former police chief has lost his legal fight to have a misdemeanor gun charge against him thrown out. John Stacey challenged the charge, calling it unconstitutional. On Monday a judge threw out Stacey's argument, meaning he will face the charge in court. Investigators say Stacey loaned a handgun to Gretna's former City Administrator Colleen Lawry, who did not have the proper handgun certificate. Stacey was placed on leave in May for an unrelated case and retired later that month. His arraignment is set for Oct. 19.
