Donald Nathan Little won't be writing anymore arrest citations for the city of Wayland after he got one himself in Pikeville.

but Mayor Tommy Robinson does know Little was arrested and accused of being on methadone. With those allegations, the mayor wasn't sure if he could put Little back on the streets, but Little took action first resigning his position.

City officials think it is best for the city, but it leaves them without a police officer again.

"We've been here seven years and we've had five city policeman," says Wayland Business owner Dale Hamilton. "So it's really no big shock to the citizens of the town or anybody else around."

Residents are used to having no policeman, but say they'd still like to have one around.

City officials say they just can't offer the same pay as nearby cities, so it's hard to find someone to take the job, but once again, they're looking. And for now, the police car will stay parked in town hall.
