COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A senior assistant city manager in South Carolina’s capital has suddenly retired after an allegation he behaved inappropriately.

Columbia City Manager Teresa Wilson said Senior Assistant City Manager Allison Baker resigned and retired Friday, two days after an allegation of inappropriate behavior was made to the city.

Wilson’s statement did not give details about the allegation, but said the city immediately investigated it after the Nov. 29 report.

Baker has worked for the city since 1997 and was the senior assistant city manager for nearly a decade.

Baker is also pastor at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Columbia.
