Early Reports: Miami Police Chief John Timoney Has Resigned

City of Miami Police Chief John Timoney has resigned, according to sources. His resignation comes as Tomas Regalado is being sworn in as mayor. Regalado made firing Timoney a frequent point in his campaign. It appears Timoney beat Regalado to the punch before he could pressure the city manager to push through a pink slip for the city's top cop.

Calls to the city manager and other city officials weren't returned, probably because most are attending Regalado's inauguration. More information to come.
