TORRINGTON, Wyo. (AP) - The mayor of Torrington has fired the city’s police chief after a Goshen County Sheriff’s Office investigation found he caused a hit-and-run accident that broke a utility pole.

KTWO-AM reports (https://bit.ly/2dtC5Zh ) that Mayor Mike Varney said Thursday that Police Chief Eric Sharp was terminated in connection to the Oct. 13 crash.

Sharp pleaded guilty to the charges and paid a fine in Goshen County Court on Wednesday.

The sheriff’s office found that she damage done to the pole was consistent with damage to Sharp’s pickup truck. Police officers asked the sheriff’s office to investigate because they suspected the culprit was an officer.
