A police chief for a small Georgia city was told to grab his belongings and leave his keys on Monday.

According to WRBL, Lumpkin Police Chief John Tyler was fired Monday night and he says he was not given a reason.

The city has only four full-time police officers, who have all resigned after Tyler’s firing.

WRBL indicated the firing could be retaliation after the city councilor was arrested for impersonating a peace officer during a city council meeting.

Darryl Wilson was a former Dawson Police officer but is not anymore.

Without a police department, the Stewart County Sheriff’s Office is assuming patrol and responsibility until a new police chief and staff can be hired.
