DEWEY BEACH, Del. (AP) - Complaints have been dropped against a town manager in Delaware that alleged the official engaged in crude behavior and misuse of his office.

Dewey Beach Mayor Dale Cooke told The Wilmington News Journal on Monday that a lawyer for several people who filed complaints against town manager Marc Appelbaum has dropped the complaints.

Cooke says the town will proceed with its investigation.

In June, officers of the Dewey Beach Police Department, the Beach Patrol and members of town administration sent a letter of complaint about Appelbaum to the mayor and town commissioners. The letter accused Appelbaum of unprofessional behavior, sexual harassment, racial discrimination and misusing his office for personal ends.

The News Journal reports that Appelbaum has not made any public comments about the allegations.
