Spirit Lake Cop Quits After Sex Claim

City sources confirm to KHQ's Dylan Wohlenhaus, the Spirit Lake police chief has resigned his position effective Wednesday, nearly 5 months after a sexual harassment tort claim was filed. KHQ reached out to Mayor Todd Clary who said Lawless has resigned his position for "personal reasons" and is no longer employed by the city.  KHQ also reached out to Patrick Lawless but calls were not returned. The former chief was also being investigated for child abuse allegations in Post Falls involving his girlfriends children. No charges were ever filed against Lawless/Dylan Wohlenhaus, KHQ. More here. (KHQ photo of Patrick Lawless)
