The rejection of the resignation plan for the embattled police chief in the Trayvon Martin case leaves the city in "limbo," the city manager said Tuesday.
"It would be better for us to have a separation," Sanford, Florida, City Manager Norton N. Bonaparte told CNN, speaking about Chief Bill Lee. "It will be challenging for him to come back."
City commissioners in Sanford voted Monday to reject the proposed resignation of Lee, who has been under fire for the handling of the probe into Trayvon Martin's death in February.
Lee has been on paid leave since March 22, a day after the commission expressed a lack of confidence in him because of the case. He remains so after the commission's decision, and Capt. Darren Scott continues to serve as acting chief.FULL STORY
