(Neb.)-Scottsbluff Police Chief Alex Moreno Resigns
SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) - The Scottsbluff city manager says Police Chief Alex Moreno, who acknowledged an affair with a woman who later sued him and the city, has resigned his post.
City Manager Rick Kuckkahn says Moreno's resignation will be effective on Oct. 1 and Moreno will take paid leave until then.
Tamara Villanueva sued Moreno and the city in federal court. Villanueva was a coordinator with a Neighborhood Watch program, and she says her monthlong sexual relationship with Moreno ended in November 2010. She says he harassed her and violated her rights after their affair ended.
In court filings Moreno denied the allegations. He has declined to comment otherwise.
He's been chief since January 2005.
