City investigates cop on leave

February 14, 2007

Ashburn -- Ashburn's City is giving few details as to why a 20 year veteran of the police force is suspended. Major Scott Ireland was suspended with pay Monday.

All city manager Ben Taylor will say is that there are allegations of misconduct.  Taylor said he is investigating and could know more by weeks end.  

"This is something my office is investigating, as far as the inquiry, and to make sure Major Ireland is allotted due process in this whole matter I can't go into further detail," said Ashburn City Manager Ben Taylor. 

Ashburn's Police Chief Ben Sumner resigned Tuesday.  Captain Bryant McCard is the interim Chief.
