Two former city of Knoxville, Tennessee, fleet services employees have left the staff and the city has closed an investigation into allegations of them harassing their supervisor and misusing city equipment.

Ricky Davis resigned July 31 and Roger Rainey left Oct. 31 after being placed on administrative leave for more than a year, according to a city memo obtained by WBIR. The city paid $37,405 to Rainey and $40,516 to Davis in salary and benefits already accrued as part of the settlement.

Davis and Rainey also resolved a federal lawsuit they filed against the city in January 2021. The lawsuit accused city authorities of failing to acknowledge their supervisor's conduct on and off the job.
