ARMA, Kan. (AP) - Arma Mayor Buddy Bualle says the town’s police chief is on unpaid leave and plans to resign after his arrest in a single-car accident.

Pittsburg police reports say chief Jeremy Allen was arrested after his car hit a cow early Friday. The reports say Allen was arrested and booked into the Crawford County Jail after he failed a field sobriety test.

The Pittsburg Morning-Sun reports Bualle said Allen has put himself on unpaid leave and plans to resign. Bualle says he plans to present the resignation to the city council on Monday.

Allen became police chief in September 2013.

The cow was uninjured.
