Newton-- A South Georgia police chief resigns to avoid criminal charges.
We told you earlier this month about an incident involving Newton Police Chief Walt Causey. He got into a tussle during a traffic stop.
The people in the car say Causey pulled his gun. He told investigators he didn't, though they say he admitted to other people he did.
Prosecutors charged Causey with making false statements and violation of his oath.
They agreed to drop the charges if Causey resigned and agreed to move out of the South Georgia Judicial circuit. Causey signed documents agreeing to do so Wednesday.
