Crosbyton police chief resigns

Crosbyton Police Chief Greg Parrott has resigned after facing an expanded list of allegations.

The Crosbyton City Council accepted Parrott's resignation at their Tuesday night meeting. 

Parrott was put on leave earlier this month after the city received a complaint that he harassed a young couple.

Although Parrott was handed a complaint of harassment along with his leave letter, the items on the agenda states "lack of confidence" by the city council which included incompetency, corruption, misconduct, or malfeasance in office.

Crosbyton City Council was set to address Parrott's employment status.

Instead, he handed in his resignation and the council accepted it.

When the meeting began, Parrott's attorney, Rod Hobson, asked the council to discuss the matter in executive session.

They met behind closed doors for more than an hour.

When everyone was let back in, Parrott resigned.

"There have been allegations made that are not true. However, Mr. Parrott feels that it's in the best interest of the citizens of Crosbyton that their police chief be working to protect them daily," said Hobson.

Parrott, the city attorney, mayor and city administrator all declined our request for an interview.

Parrott was a former Sheriff's deputy and he had been the police chief in Crosbyton for two years.
