Police Chief Popped Smoking Pot In "Vindictive Wife's" Video

A Mississippi police chief is under serious fire after a video surfaced of him smoking weed. To ask Lumberton Police Chief Shane Flynt, his “very vindictive” wife is responsible for posting the video of him smoking what appears to be pot. In the video, Flynt can be heard rambling and boasting about how cool he is, as the police chief, "for smoking weed."

Once busted, Flynt was suspended - and later tendered his resignation, which the town’s Board of Alderman (like a town council) declined to accept. Now back on the job and apologizing. He has also taken to Facebook to acknowledge the “huge mistake” he made and for trusting his wife.

“They recorded me in a vulnerable state and they planned every minute of it,” wrote Flynt. “This person being my wife who is obviously very vindictive. I love serving the town of Lumberton, the people there are like family to me. It saddens my heart that I’ve disappointed many as well as myself… There is no excuse. I pray you all find it in your hearts to show me grace and know that I am truly sorry for this incident.”

  • Flynt has since been reinstated, but Lumberton Mayor Quincy Rogers is still looking into the case. It’s being reported Flynt has volunteered a drug test and the results are pending.
