(GREENWOOD) - A suspended Greenwood police officer has resigned from the department, according to Greenwood police.

The resignation is effective immediately.

Joey Rodriguez was suspended last week after getting into a fight during a New Year's party. During the fight, he's accused of punching responding officers and kicking at medical crews.

FOX59 learned last week that Rodriguez did not enter an alcohol rehabilitation program, which was part of his agreement to be released from the Johnson County Jail.

The Greenwood Police Merit Board was scheduled to meet Monday, and Rodriguez had until before the meeting to resign. Otherwise, he would face termination by the department.

As part of his agreement, Rodriguez was also ordered to have no contact with any of the people he fought with at the party.
