NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - The police commissioner in Nashua, N.H., has resigned after helping a state lawmaker who drove into a group of ducks outside of a city hotel.

Thomas J. Pappas resigned in a letter to Gov. Maggie Hassan on Wednesday.

Pappas says in the letter that he deeply regrets his part in the events on Dec. 23, 2013, and apologizes to the governor, the Nashua Police Department and the public.

Rep. David Campbell, a Democrat, has been cited for illegal taking of waterfowl and paid a $695 fine.

Campbell had called Pappas for assistance after hitting and killing five ducks. The Nashua Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/1gNP0B3 ) that Campbell says he walked away and was picked up by Pappas, who called police on his behalf and arranged to have him speak with police later.
