FANWOOD, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey police chief has resigned amid controversy over alleged comments about an Asian-American former county prosecutor and New Jersey's first Sikh attorney general. The Union County prosecutor's office announced that Fanwood Police Chief Richard Trigo notified the town's mayor and council Friday night that he would resign effective Monday. A recording surfaced online last week in which Trigo allegedly made derogatory comments about former Union County Prosecutor Grace Park and current state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal. A message was left Monday with an attorney representing Trigo.
