Sunset Beach Police officer suspended

Posted: Updated:

SUNSET BEACH, NC (WECT) - Sunset Beach Police Chief Lisa Massey has confirmed that she has placed a police officer on suspension, pending the results of an investigation.

Chief Massey would not say who the officer is, but says this stems from a DWI court case.

Massey's decision came after a meeting with the District Attorney's office, where it was determined that there was no criminal violation, but possibly an ethical one.

Massey is still determining what agency will conduct the investigation.

District Attorney Jon David says questions about testimony were brought to his attention by one of his assistant district attorneys. The DA's office immediately dismissed the case.

David says he applauds the swift and decisive action taken by Chief Massey.
