NC Central Police Chief Out After DWI Charge

DURHAM, N.C. The police chief at N.C. Central University is out of a job, nearly three weeks after he was charged with driving while impaired.


Area media outlets reported that the school issued a brief statement Friday. A school spokeswoman didn't say whether Timothy Bellamy resigned or was fired.


Bellamy led the NCCU police force since 2012. Before that, he was chief of the Greensboro Police Department, where he spent 27 years on the force.


State troopers said Bellamy was at a driver's license checkpoint in Greensboro on Aug. 2 when an officer smelled alcohol on his breath and noticed his eyes were red and glassy.


Authorities said Bellamy registered a blood-alcohol level of .09 percent, just over the legal limit of .08 percent.


Bellamy was suspended with pay after his arrest.
