Connecticut police chief resigns amid civil rights scandal -

"The federal grand jury indictment also said Gallo -- as the unnamed co-conspirator -- and two union leaders sought to "strongly discourage, and even to threaten, fellow officers and other witnesses, who might report officer misconduct or cooperate in the investigations of the East Haven Police Department."

Gallo's decision to step down from the job, which he reached on Friday and then shared with the mayor, is not an admission of

wrongdoing, his lawyer said.

Rather, it was an effort to stop mounting calls for Gallo and Maturo's resignations, which have been upsetting, his lawyer said."
