HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — The police chief in Nevada’s second-largest city is on unpaid leave, amid reports that she balked at signing a separation contract that would have her resign in May and agree not to disparage the city.

Henderson Police Chief LaTesha Watson had been on paid leave since March, after an independent investigator recommended officials in the Las Vegas suburb consider firing her.

Deputy Henderson City Manager and operations chief Bristol Ellington tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal Watson is on unpaid leave and he expects her job status to be resolved within a week.

The newspaper says Watson couldn’t be reached for comment.

She became Henderson police chief in November 2017, after serving as deputy chief in Arlington, Texas.

She was hired as a reformer after her predecessor was ousted amid a sexual harassment investigation.
