Indianapolis Metro Police chief resigns amid scandal

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The chief of the Indianapolis Metro Police Department is out.

Now, the FBI is investigating the scandal that cost him his job. Paul Ciesielski resigned Tuesday after his department mishandled a blood sample. It was taken from a police officer. The cop was driving a cruiser involved in a fatal crash.

Back in August of 2010, an officer hit and killed a 30-year-old man and severely injured two others. It turns out that officer was drunk.

"At best this matter shows gross incompetence and at worst, possible criminal intent," said Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard.

Three other high-ranking police officers have been demoted.
