Darren Wilson Resigns From Ferguson Police Dept.

The Missouri cop who killed unarmed teen Michael Brown has resigned from the Ferguson police force, his lawyer confirmed Saturday.

Darren Wilson, 28, turned in his badge five days after a grand jury decided not to indict him in the Aug. 9 slaying of 18-year-old Brown.

“I’m resigning of my own free will,” Wilson told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “I’m not willing to let someone else get hurt because of me.”

He said leaving the force was “the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.”
