KNOXVILLE (WATE) -- Personnel records show two men who resigned as Knoxville police officers Tuesday have minor work offenses.

The men are Nicky R. Bryant and Donald S. Clark. Both have been suspended for different offenses.

Bryant joined the force about six months before Clark did.

In Bryant's seven years of service, he was reprimanded a number of times. The offenses include four traffic accidents and working an extra job without proper authorization.

Clark was written up on several occasions, once for violating the National Crime Information Center, by revealing sensitive information to a citizen.

Another time, Clark was written up for making a traffic stop without using his siren.

Their resignation letters give no explanation about why Bryant and Clark are no longer on the force.

On Thursday, 6 News traveled from West Knoxville to Maynardville, where we spoke with people who used to live close to the officers.

One neighbor who knew Bryant called him a nice person who was always willing to help.

The Knoxville Police Department still won't confirm the names of the two officers under investigation for possible criminal misconduct or comment on details surrounding the allegations.

However, officials say the state Department of Children's Services is involved.

The Knox County Sheriff's Office is also investigating the criminal misconduct allegations.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the FBI say they're not involved in the case.

The Knox County DA's office wouldn't comment.
