CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The police chief of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools has been placed on administrative leave during an internal investigation.

School spokeswoman Tahira Stalberte says Bud Cesena was placed on leave Wednesday afternoon. Stalberte says the move is a personnel matter that she cannot discuss.

School board members would not talk about the situation.

Cesena has been the school police chief since 2006. He previously worked for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

Deputy Chief Randy Hagler is the interim police chief.

There was no telephone listing for Cesena.
