ARVIN, Calif. — The Arvin City Council is expected to discuss their chief of police position in a closed session on Tuesday.

Former Arvin Police Chief Scot Kimble resigned from the department back in March as part of a plea deal. Kimble took a plea deal after facing allegations of misappropriating funds and trying to mislead the investigation against him.

The charges were also related to Kimble's actions as chief of police at the McFarland Police Department in 2016. According to the DA's office, during that time, Kimble on multiple occasions asked officers to assist him with housework such as unloading furniture and construction.

The DA's office said Kimble would ask officers to do these things while on-duty and they would use city vehicles.

The Arvin City Council is now set to meet on Tuesday.
