Nick was fired from the force when he failed to fulfill his duty, and he was interfering and making decisions based on his bais as he was helping the suspect of Crystal Roger's disappearance by not cooperating with the police.
Later on, he also got ethically questioned as to his polygraph test, and he does not seem to have done well on the test. Thus, Nick was fired from the force, and it was also reported that his car of Crystal was dumped on the road, and the prints in the car were all cleaned.
