Peoria police sergeant resigns after 'altercation' with co-worker


A Peoria police officer has resigned after getting into what the chief calls an altercation with a co-worker.

Chief Eric Echevarria says Sergeant Nate Adams resigned after a public dispute Thursday morning with a female officer at a "local establishment." Both were off-duty at the time.

The Illinois State Police are leading the investigation. The police department declined further comment.
