The MCPD said in September the administration convened a criminal investigation into the matter and placed Severs on leave.  

Once a violation of criminal law was established the MCPD brought in the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation and the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement to assist with the investigation and to avoid a conflict of interest.

Severs has been cited and released from the Cerro Gordo County Jail and is currently awaiting a court appearance.

The release also stated Severs is no longer employed by the police department.
