Crosbyton police chief resigns

CROSBYTON, TX (KCBD) -

The Crosbyton City Council accepted the resignation of Police Chief Greg Parrott on Tuesday night following a harassment complaint.

Parrott was put on leave last week after the city received a complaint that he harassed a young couple.

Parrott says the Crosbyton City Administrator Margot Hardin and Mayor Dusty Cornelius handed him a written complaint along with his administrative leave letter.

In an interview last week, Parrot called the complaint "absolutely frivolous."

The complaint said Parrott made false accusations against the couple and brought in Child Protective Services.

The complaint said, "it was humiliating to me and my family…it is not right to be treated like criminals when no crime was in place."

Parrott admits to calling CPS on the young couple but says it was warranted.

He says he responded to a loud music complaint from an anonymous caller last month.

When he arrived at the home, he says he found beer bottles on the property.

Parrott says he knew an underage couple lived there and that the couple had a newborn.

After a Crosbyton toddler was found dead in her caregiver's home last year, Parrott says he felt the need to call CPS just to be safe.

Parrott told KCBD he had done nothing wrong and says he wanted to be completely transparent about everything.

Parrot says he has had three complaints filed against him in the past year. He says he was never told those complaints were validated.

Parrott says the city told him there is an apparent fourth complaint, but he says they couldn't tell him what it was last week.
