PERRY, Ohio, July 3 (UPI) -- After an Ohio police chief agreed to retire, officials released video showing him making out with a female officer while they were transporting a prisoner.

Timothy Escola, police chief in Perry, and Janine England, a part-time police officer, were taped by the dashboard camera in a police cruiser, The Canton (Ohio) Repository reported Thursday. They drove to the Cincinnati area to bring a burglary suspect to Stark County in northeastern Ohio.

Escola released an apology through his lawyer Wednesday, the day after the tape was released.

"Timothy Escola, former Perry Township chief of police, regrets and apologizes to his family and to the citizens of Perry Township for engaging in inappropriate behavior; and, he accepts full responsibility and accountability for his actions, along with the attendant consequences," he said.

The video shows Escola and England kissing and caressing each other. Escola occasionally glances into the back seat to check on the prisoner.

An anonymous tip led to an investigation. England's lawyer said she intends to remain in her job.
