Heavily pregnant Kentucky police officer told she must stay on PATROL or take unpaid leave

A pregnant police officer from Florence, Kentucky, has been told she has to stay on patrol during her pregnancy - or take unpaid leave and lose her health benefits.

Lyndi Trischler, who became a Florence Police officer in 2012, last year gave birth to a daughter and was given office work so she could cope with the phyiscal strains.
