Florida Police Chief Resigning In Trayvon Martin Case Fallout: Reports

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

The police chief of Sanford, Fla., is expected to resign this afternoon amid fallout from the Trayvon Martin case, according to multiple reports.

Chief Bill Lee was suspended last month after the killing of the unarmed teen drew national attention to the Florida city.

Now, both CBS News and CNN are reporting he will step down. CBS also said an assistant chief in the department may resign as well.
