Highway Patrol Commander Resigns After Meeting With Governor

The commander of the Highway Patrol has resigned after a meeting with the governor and the head of Crime Control and Public Safety.

In a statement, Governor Beverly Perdue says after a brief discussion she accepted Col Randy Glover's resignation.

The governor says next week she will announce a Highway Patrol transition team of outside advisers.

Glover had come under increasing pressure as more and more problems have hit the organization. The latest just this morning when it was announced that a sergeant was suspended amid a criminal investigation.

Glover, who is from New Bern, was appointed by Perdue to lead the patrol just last year. The resignation comes after Perdue met with the patrol's top officials earlier this month and demanded an end to the string of ethical lapses.
