The Montevideo police chief who had been on leave since November after a young woman alleged harassment has resigned from his post.

A Montevideo Police Commission meeting on Monday received the resignation of Adam Christopher, who has been chief of the department since June 2006, the West Central Tribune reports.

Christopher had been placed on leave in November, after a young woman alleged she'd been the subject of harassment by the chief, who is the father of one of her tae kwon do classmates.

Christopher allegedly sent her hundreds of messages  that started when she was 17, and became sexual in nature when she turned 18.

The woman filed a restraining order against him, prompting the City of Montevideo to place him on paid leave while an investigation was carried out.

BMTN reached out to the Montevideo Police Department for comment, but received no response.
