(Sanford, FL) Sanford Florida’s police chief, Bill Lee, resigned from his position today but the city commission there voted not to accept that resignation.

This according to CBS News.

Lee had been on a temporary leave since last month after receiving backlash over the way his department handled the Trayvon Martin murder investigation.

Sources close to the Sanford Police Department say one of the acting chiefs may also tenure his resignation today as well.

This announcement comes less than 24 hours after George Zimmerman’s release from jail.

He’s out on a $150,000 bond.
