    Singleton was recorded on duty drinking at a party in uniform, so he had to resign.

      Can’t say that I’m surprised about the last comment, if it’s true I don’t understand how Madison Co could hire him for that position, but then again it’s Madison Co… I hope that one day karma catches up with him and his true colors show for all the world to see.
