Starkville police chief put on paid leave

Starkville StockSTARKVILLE (AP) – Starkville police Chief David Lindley has been placed on paid administrative leave, though a reason for the move wasn’t immediately disclosed.

Starkville Mayor Parker Wiseman tells local television stations that the city’s Board of Aldermen decided to place Lindley on leave during a closed-door meeting Friday.

Wiseman didn’t give a reason for the decision, saying he can’t comment on personnel matters. He didn’t immediately respond to a telephone call and email from The Associated Press on Saturday.

The TV stations report that former Assistant Police Chief John Outlaw will serve as interim chief in Lindley’s absence.
