Chickasha Police Chief Resigns

 CHICKASHA, Okla._Chickasha Police Chief Eddie Adamson has resigned, according to city officials. 

Officers called for his resignation after a racially insensitive Facebook post on his profile.

City officials say its clear Adamson did not know that word was used in the caption, and he immediately apologized. However, Officers with the Chickasha Police Department said the chief crossed a line, and he either needed to resign or be relieved of his duties.
