LELAND, NC (WWAY) — Two Leland Police officers suspended after a fight in downtown Wilmington over the weekend have resigned from the police force.
Andrew Correll and Brandon Crain had been suspended while the department conducted an internal investigation. The town says that investigation will continue so that police administrators may assess where policy and procedures can be more effective to help prevent future incidences of this nature.
Wilmington Police cited Correll, Crain and three other men for misdemeanor affray after a fight at Front and Market streets early Saturday morning. A witness told WWAY the men had been trying to pick fights throughout the evening.
