A controversial cop in northern New Mexico has resigned.
KRQE News 13 told you on Special Assignment about mounting complaints against Espanola Police Sergeant Greg Esparza.
The city paid out more than $800,000 in settlements for complaints involving Esparza, who is accused of using excessive force.
A private investigator found most claims were not sustained due to a lack of video evidence.
However, Esparza was placed on desk duty after another investigation was launched back in May.
At this point, the outcome of the investigation has not been released, but Esparza officially resigned last week.
