After being silent all weekend Charlotte's embattled Police Chief made the best of the Fuel Pizza episode.
WSOC reported the following, well most of the following:
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Rodney Monroe said he took "swift action" after allegations of an officer committing a sex act while on duty became known to him.
Chief Monroe also told WSOC that Almendarez was "forced to resign" on Saturday.
Monroe added that the resignation sends a message that (Amendarez' type of) behavior will not be tolerated.
"I wish that it had not occurred, but it did, and my responsibility is to deal with it, and that's what we're doing," Monroe said.
Fox News is quoting the chief as saying: “Just what we did. Forced him to resign. And it’s a message that we’re sending throughout the department and it’s something that we’ve been very clear about, we’re just not going to tolerate certain behavior."
After the interview Chief Monroe addressed his staff and stressed that the force "Will Not Tolerate Inappropriate Behavior".
The chief added that at CMPD "we're going to nip it, nip it in the bud!"
