Police officer Darren Wilson is reportedly in the final stages of negotiating his resignation from the Ferguson Police Department. Get the deets inside…..

Tensions are still high in Ferguson, Missouri after unarmed teen Michael Brown was gunned down by police officer Darren Wilson in the middle of the street back in August. Violent protests, looting sprees and social unrest erupted in the streets of the small city over the delayed response from the grand jury to indict the officer in Michael’s death.

According to CNN, Officer Wilson is in the final stages of negotiating with city officials to resign from the Ferguson Police Department after serving six years on the force. Darren still stands by his original statement that he did nothing wrong in the shooting death of Mike Brown.

Officer Wilson (who is still on paid administrative leave) has reportedly told fellow officers he would resign to help ease the tension in the the city, but expressed concern that his resignation could indicate he’s guilty as the grand jury hears evidence in the case.  The grand jury will hear evidence today for what might be its final session. A decision on whether to charge officer Wilson could come by the end of today’s session.

Officer Wilson’s possible resignation announcement could come on the same day as the grand jury’s final decision. If the grand jury makes a decision today, prosecutors are expected to provide law enforcement with 48 hours notice before making a public announcement. So we will likely find out their final decision by Sunday.

Ferguson police say they are prepared for whatever happens after the announcement is made. St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said,

"We've had three months to prepare. ... Acts of violence will not be tolerated," he said. "Our intelligence is good. Our tactics are good. We can protect lawful people and at the same time arrest criminals."
 

Let's hope the grand jury gets this right. We'll keep you posted...
