NCCU Police Chief Timothy Bellamy no longer on staff

DURHAM (WTVD) -- North Carolina Central University confirmed Friday that Police Chief Timothy Bellamy is no longer on the school's staff.

The news comes almost two weeks after Bellamy was charged with driving while impaired.

On Aug. 2, Bellamy was reportedly driving down Interstate 40 around midnight when he was stopped by a North Carolina Highway Patrol trooper.

According to records, the trooper smelled alcohol on Bellamy's breath and noticed he had red, glassy eyes. Bellamy blew a .09 on a breathalyzer test.

NCCU initially suspended Bellamy with pay in accordance with university policies and procedures.

Bellamy had been the police chief at NCCU since 2012. He retired as Greensboro police chief in 2010.

His court date is set for Sept. 4.
