Darren Wilson, the officer who dodged charges for fatally shooting unarmed teen Mike Brown, has reportedly resigned from the Ferguson police department.

Reports the New York Times:

The officer cleared on Monday by a grand jury in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager resigned Saturday night from the Police Department in Ferguson, Mo., according to The Associated Press.

The resignation of the officer, Darren Wilson, capped a day of protests and an organized march over the fatal shooting of the teenager, Michael Brown, in August. Officer Wilson, who had been with the force for three years, cited security fears in his resignation letter, which was released by one of his lawyers, Neil Bruntrager, according to the news service.

Since Wilson was cleared by the grand jury, there have been protests in Ferguson and throughout the nation.
