CLOVIS, N.M. (KRQE) – A Clovis police officer facing a series of excessive force allegations has resigned.
According to the Eastern New Mexico news, officer Brent Aguilar quit over the weekend and will be looking for a new position outside of the department.
The 12-year officer is named in four lawsuits relating to his police work. One says Aguilar released his K-9 on a suicidal man last February, claiming the dog hospitalized him for nine days and was used inappropriately.
Aguilar is also accused of wrongful arrest in another case.
