Since Pugh’s suspension, the city has paid him $5,989.60, according to Diana Morgan, human resources director for the city of Jacksonville.

“We’re paying him at his regular rate of pay, no overtime, and that amount is after taxes,” Morgan said.

Morgan said there is no time limit for the amount of time Pugh can be on paid suspension.

Johnson said he cannot release whether or not the FBI investigation is in relation to Pugh’s official capacity. Pugh, 33, joined JPD in January 2003.

An FBI investigation continues, and when it is completed, more information will be available, according to Johnson.
