Michael Capriglione, former Chief of Police for the Town of Newport, was ordered to surrender his certification and was sentenced to probation by a Kent County Superior Court judge.
Capriglione pleaded guilty in February to Official Misconduct (Class A Misdemeanor) and Careless Driving.
In May 2018, Capriglione struck another car in the parking lot of Newport police headquarters, while driving a departmentvehicle. He later ordered the deletion of surveillance video that showed the collision.
The court sentenced Capriglione to one year of probation with a second year of probation that will be discharged upon completion of $8,639.07 restitution to the Town of Newport and a $75 fine.
He also must surrender his Delaware Council on Police Training Certification.
