A Cicero police commander under investigation for possible drug use asked to resign from his post and be demoted to patrolman the day before he underwent a town-ordered drug screening.
Wesley Scott did not give a reason for the unusual request in his letter to the police superintendent, town spokesman Dan Proft said.

Vindication for the officers who did their job. All of you who would rather shit on these guys because of their unit are disingenuous at best and hypocrites at the worst.

Sounds to me like someone who no longer wishes to keep his academy spot. It really doesn't play well to teach recruits to throw away weed. Good luck back on the watch!
