PERRY TOWNSHIP, OH (WOIO) -  Perry Township Police Chief Timothy Escola resigned this week after a tipster called and said the Chief was having sexy time in his police cruiser with a part-time police officer.

Upon checking police cruiser dash cam, investigators found evidence they needed against the Chief and the part-time employee who were engaging in romantic exchanges while transporting a prisoner!

The resignation of Perry Township Police Chief Timothy Escola was accepted Tuesday night by trustees.

Escola had been Chief of Police for four-years before submitting his resignation.

Law Director Charles Hall launched an investigation that required looking at police cruiser video tape.

The tape shows Escola and a part-time female police officer, Janine England, snuggling and kissing while driving around in the cruiser.

Escola is married with three children.

No word on who will step us as acting Chief at this time.

Check back for details.
