Assistant Chief on Administrative Leave

Carthage, IL – Carthage's Assistant Police Chief is on administrative leave while the Illinois State Police finish an investigation. Mayor James Nightingale says the council granted the paid leave through next month if necessary. He says the investigation concerns a DARE pickkup truck Floyd sold the city after it had been rejuvenated, partly with donations. It also involves some guns Floyd acquired from a family that did not want them in the home of their elderly father. Nightingale says the investigation could be completed within a few weeks.
