The Oklahoma Highway Patrol confirms that Commissioner Mike Thompson accepted a letter of resignation from Trooper Joshua Davies on Tuesday.
A pre-termination hearing for Davies was scheduled for Wednesday, August 27, 2014.
“Trooper Davies' actions on July 3, 2014, was an egregious breach of the standard of conduct demanded by our profession. It is never pleasant when an officer is forced to arrest one of his own, but it should be noted that the Troopers who responded to Davies’ DUI accident and subsequently arrested him enforced the standard without exception." Chief Ricky Adams said.
"I am hopeful that the poor decisions made by former Trooper Joshua Davies will not bring discredit on the 99% of our State Troopers that are shining examples of what our profession demands." Chief Adams added.
