The Board of Selectmen in Croydon New Hampshire voted to dissolve Chief Richard Lee's position, ordering him to surrender his cruiser and uniform. In protest, Lee resigned to the order immediately, handing in his keys and stripping down to his boots and underwear.
The former police chief then left walking out into a 26 degree snowstorm where he walked for about 20 minutes before his wife picked him up nearly a mile later.
Lee was head of the small town's one-man police department. He plans to discuss the firing and options with his attorney.
