Interim Town Manager Jerome Chestnut said on Wednesday it was his sole discretion to put Anthony Spivey on leave, but the mayor and town council were consulted before a final decision was made.

Lieutenant Ken Elliot is serving as chief for now.

SBI referred us to the district attorney’s office for any other information.
