Report: beleaguered Covington police captain to retire
Covington Police Department Captain Jack West is planning to retire next month, according to WWL-TV.
West was the subject of an internal investigation regarding the arrest of two high school football referees earlier this year. Most recently, he was put on paid administrative leave after a shotgun he was showing to a recruit discharged inside the station, putting a hole in the ceiling.
WWL-TV reports Covington Police Chief Tim Lentz says this effectively ends the internal investigation.
