Lafayette Police Chief Ray Amalfitano resigns amid investigation
LAFAYETTE, Tenn. -Nashville’s News 2 Investigates has learned that the Lafayette Police Chief Ray Amalfitano has resigned effective Friday.
Mayor Richard Driver told Nashville’s News 2 Investigates Amalfitano “resigned on his own,” adding, “It was best for him and the police department.”
Driver says he has yet to choose Amalfitano’s replacement.
