HARRIMAN, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Harriman Police Chief Randy Heidel announced his plans to retire. A statement from the city attorney cited a "tense workplace" after a series of allegations came out against the chief.
According to Local 8 Now, the city attorney said in light of the retirement, the city will not continue its investigation of whether Heidel violated ethical city and police policy and mismanaged the department.
All criminal investigations are at the discretion of the district attorney's office. The district attorney has not confirmed if a criminal investigation will go forward.
The position remains open and there will be an application process for anyone interested and qualified individuals.
This comes after he was placed on administrative leave Thursday.
A packet containing 19 allegations against him was distributed to the city manager, district attorney, council members and the city attorney's office earlier last week.
Some of the allegations included: he took car parts from police cruisers and used them on his personal car; that he held a birthday party for his son under the guise of airsoft gun training; and that he yelled at and belittled his employees on a regular basis.
