Emmett Township Sergeant resigns amid investigation of possible OWI crash
EMMETT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) An Emmett Township Police sergeant accused of filing a false police report to cover up a drunk driving crash has resigned.
Police say Deb Novar filed a false report eleven hours after she had her car towed from a crash scene back on August 20th.
An internal investigation was underway to determine the cause of Novar's crash, including if she may have been drinking and driving.
According to the Battle Creek Police Department, that crash is being investigated as an OWI. Last week Novar was placed on unpaid administrative leave pending the completion of an internal investigation.
Chief Olson tells Newschannel 3 that Novar resigned on Monday.
