Exclusive: Officer Allan Brown Resigns

Brown involved in Deadly shooting after High Speed Chase

It’s been about a week now since a Russell County Grand Jury cleared Officer Allan Brown of any criminal wrong doing

but as of today, and on the heels of the Columbus Police Department’s own internal investigation, Officer Brown has turned in his resignation effective immediately.

Officer Brown handed in a one line letter of resignation to the Chief this past Wednesday making his exit from the Police Department official after five years of service on the police force.

The Office of Professional Standards review is wrapping up and will determine if the Officer violated any Department policies .

A First News investigation revealed Brown was already fresh off a suspension for violating pursuit policy last year when the incident involving three Columbus teens occurred.

Operating on a report of a stolen vehicle, Brown chased Christian Redwine with two other teens in the car, into Russell County and has testified he felt threatened when he shot all three, killing Redwine who was the person driving.

Officer Brown had been serving on desk duty in Patrol when he abruptly resigned Wednesday.

Officials say it could still be some time before all the details of that deadly night are made public. Attorneys representing the two teens who survived the incident and that of the family of Christian Redwine are promising a civil lawsuit claiming excessive force. Robbie Watson, WLTZ First News.
