Former Highway Patrol Major Texted Secretary 2,640 Times

A high-ranking North Carolina Highway Patrol trooper sent more than 2,600 text messages to a female co-worker in the months leading up to his resignation.

The Highway Patrol released the text messages of Maj. Everett Clendenin on Wednesday after public records requests from media organizations. Clendenin resigned last week, saying he admitted to poor judgment but denied he had a sexual relationship with the co-worker.

The messages show that Clendenin sent the woman some 2,640 text messages in April, May and June. Many of the messages were sent during overnight hours with flirtatious notes calling the recipient "sweetie" or "baby" and accompanied by heart symbols.
