East Cleveland, OH - A veteran police chief is off the job this hour.
City Hall very tight-lipped after the mayor of East Cleveland suspends Chief Patricia Lane.
Mayor Brewer issued the following statement:
"I have temporarily assigned Lt. Ralph Spotts to serve, until further notice, as Acting Chief of the East Cleveland Department of Police. There are no public records available in any document that will reveal my motivation for the decision. The media may speculate about the decision, but it does so with a reckless disregard for the truth."
