• Ex-police chief charged with misdemeanor involving database

    AKRON, Ohio (AP) - A former Ohio police chief who resigned amid accusations of potential misconduct has been charged with a misdemeanor accusing him of attempted unauthorized use of a police database.

    Former Akron chief James Nice was charged Friday in Summit County with the count of "attempted unauthorized use of property." Court documents accuse him of attempting to access the Law Enforcement Automated Data System, or LEADS, database on Feb. 10, 2017.

    Nice resigned as chief last August amid allegations of potential misconduct related to an investigation into his nephew and accusations of using a racial slur and having a sexual relationship with a department member.

    He denied any criminal wrongdoing.

    No public phone listing could be found for him Friday. His attorney's office was closed and no messages could be left.
