Genitalia-shaped pasta incident leads Phoenix deputy fire chief to file sexual harassment lawsuit

Phoenix Fire Department deputy chief shift commander Frank Cheatham has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against the city of Phoenix.

Cheatham claims that other firefighters created a sexually hostile work environment that included sending Cheatham pieces of pasta shaped like a penis and vagina with his name written on one of the pasta pieces.

Cheatham claims that after he complained about the pasta incident and other inappropriate workplace behavior to superiors, he was involuntarily reassigned to another division of the Phoenix Fire Department with less responsibility.

Cheatham filed a complaint with the EEOC prior to filing the sexual harassment lawsuit against the City of Phoenix.
