Greensboro, NC -- Greensboro's city manager is accusing former chief David Wray of breaking the law.

Investigators are looking into Wray's administration and allegations they targeted black officers.

At issue is protected personnel information. City leaders accuse Wray of revealing that information to other officers and union leaders.

City manager Mitch Johnson says that's a violation of state law.

"It's not prosecutable at this point because he resigned and because the people he discussed have decided not to prosecute it. But it's clearly inappropriate for someone who wears the badge," says Johnson.

The attorney general's office has now taken over the Greensboro police investigation.

Two officers -- Scott Sanders and Tom Fox -- are the only ones indicted, charged with obstructing justice and other crimes.

Wray does not face any criminal charges. His attorney, Locke Clifford, says Wray did not violate any laws. Clifford says Wray is not responsible for any problems at the Greensboro Police Department.

"Anybody that says David Wray is a racist is an idiot," Clifford says.
