Chillicothe Mayor Jack Everson has released a statement to the press, explaining his decision to place Police Chief Roger Moore on paid administrative leave.

The release states that following an incident with the chief on July 25th, the mayor made his decision and further states that an investigation showing whether disciplinary action was warranted has been completed.

The actual disciplinary action has to await a "Loudermilk Conference", conducted by a third party, to be scheduled next week. That affords Chief Moore the opportunity to state his side of the story. A finding from the report will be rendered.

Mayor Everson says "the action is not related to any other issue pending with the City of Chillicothe", and added that "this situation will be dealt with swiftly and appropriately".
