The Smyrna police office accused of gay canoodling with a 15-year-old neighbor won't face criminal charges, but he quit over pending disciplinary actions from his employer.

From the AJC:

But the officer, whose name was not released, was facing disciplinary action from the department, Officer Christopher Graeff said.

The officer resigned during the investigation, Graeff said.

Smyrna police have been tight-lipped about the accusations and investigation. Cobb police, which also investigated, has declined to discuss details of the case, too.

The teen's mother complained to local media outlets that the officer hired her son to walk his dog. And one night when the teen didn't return home, she went searching for him. That's when she discovered him at the officer's apartment and the two took several minutes to answer the door. She also said her son's phone contained racy text messages between the two men, including one with an image of a man wearing women's lingerie.
