KERNERSVILLE, N.C. (AP) — The police chief in the Forsyth County city of Kernersville has resigned.
The city issued a statement late Monday saying that Police Chief Ken Gamble had resigned, citing differences in leadership and management style with the town manager and the town board.
The resignation came the day Gamble was to return from a two-week administrative leave.
There was no comment from Gamble or from Town Manager Curtis Swisher late Monday.
Swisher had placed Gamble on paid administrative leave March 4 but would not say why.
Gamble had been police chief since 2009 and earned nearly $87,000 a year.
Gamble also had been placed on administrative leave in July after his patrol car hit two handcuffed men as they sat beside a road following a police chief.
