ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (WAVY) – Friday afternoon, Sam Beamon offered his resignation from his post as police chief of ECSU. He was already on administrative leave.

Beamon was placed on leave April 25, stemming from the campus’ handling of a complaint of assault and sexual battery.

The State Bureau of Investigation is conducting an independent investigation into the allegations of obstruction of justice and witness intimidation at ECSU.

Officials have not confirmed the specific case that led to the investigation. However, an ECSU woman was sexually assaulted twice by her dorm leader on campus, and it wasn’t until city police stepped in that her alleged attacker, Anthony Butler, was arrested.

John Manley was already serving as interim police chief and will stay in that post for the time being. ECSU and the Elizabeth City Police Department paired up last week, adding city police officers to patrol the campus.
