Mayor Dave Bing announced Monday morning that the 44-year-old Godbee submitted a letter of resignation, effective immediately, from the job he’s held since 2010.
Bing placed him on a 30-day suspension last week pending an investigation into the claims by 37-year-old Angelica Robinson’s attorney that she wanted the relationship to end and Godbee did not.
Last week Fox 2′s Charlie LeDuff spoke with Robinson after she posted a photo of herself on Twitter with a gun in her mouth after learning Godbee was at a weekend conference with another woman. See the full interview and controversial photo>>
At Monday’s press conference, Bing said assistant Chief Chester Logan will serve as interim chief. Logan had assumed Godbee’s responsibilities during the suspension.
Bing said a national search for a new chief for the department is planned.
