WINDCREST -- Police Chief Joe Pabon started working at the Windcrest Police Department back in 1998. For the past four years he's served as chief of police.

Thursday afternoon he resigned. About 15 residents addressed city council members and the mayor asking them not to accept the resignation.

Pabon's wife also spoke up, saying her husband was forced to resign.

City Manager Rafael Castillo said Pabon made the best decision for himself and his family.

Lt. Dale Clark will serve as interim chief.

Mayor Alan Baxter declined to comment and referred us to a city attorney, who did not return our phone call.
