CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV)- Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Police Chief Bud Cesena has chosen to retire while on administrative leave, effective immediately.
The former Chief was placed on administrative leave Wednesday, pending an internal investigation, a CMS spokesperson told WBTV Thursday.
Cesena, who has held the title of CMS Police Chief since late 2006, was put on leave as the result of a personnel matter. Officials told WBTV that school policy prevents them from discussing the matter publicly.
Deputy Chief Randy Hagler was appointed Interim Police Chief during Cesena's leave, CMS said.
