A spokesman says Illinois State Police director Larry Trent has resigned.
Sgt. Luis Gutierrez says Trent stepped down Friday, effective immediately.
He did not have further details, including whether a replacement for Trent has been named.
Trent served with the Illinois State Police for 22 years before former Gov. Rod Blagojevich chose him as director in 2003.
Trent is an Army veteran who served in Vietnam and received the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.
This is the same guy that compared firearm rights supporters to criminals:
"There isn't really any middle ground on this issue," State Police Director Larry Trent said at a news conference Tuesday. "You either stand with the gun lobby or you stand with law enforcement."
But at the same time refused to enforce the laws.
Good riddance Larry. Don't let the door hit your @ss on the way out.
UPDATE: Potential reason. Rehabilitated? Have a court order to expunge or seal your record? Like the ISP cares.
