Lincoln, N.D., police chief resigned but retracted it

LINCOLN, N.D. — The Lincoln police chief who's on paid administrative leave because of a domestic violence restraining order against him apparently thought about resigning.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1aufcHE ) it obtained letters showing Chief Marcel Sim submitted a letter of resignation last week but later retracted it.

He did not return messages seeking comment and the lawyer who represented him earlier no longer does.

Mayor Bob Johnston says Sim remains on paid administrative, which started Sept. 25. Johnston says he's still awaiting information on the personal matter, and meetings on the issue will likely be scheduled soon.

According to court documents, a restraining order against Sim was signed Sept. 23 after a hearing involving him, his wife and their attorneys.
