Pittsburgh Police Chief Resigns Under Pressure Amid FBI Investigation

Pittsburgh Police Chief Nate Harper resigned Wednesday amid a federal investigation into his department, the Associated Press reports.

The AP wrote that Mayor Luke Ravenstahl met earlier in the day with FBI agents and decided Harper should step down.

“I’m not going to talk to you about the chief’s reaction,” the mayor said. “This is a sad day.”

Harper denied doing anything wrong when he partnered with four subordinates to create a private security firm, the AP reported. Whether that’s the focus of the investigation remains unknown.

Ravenstahl said he plans to run for reelection and is not a target in the investigation.
