    INKSTER, MI -- Amid scandal stemming from the violent videotaped arrest of Floyd Dent Jan. 28 and criminal charges against Inkster Police Officer William Melendez, Police Chief Vicki Yost resigned without explanation Wednesday.


    "It was a normal resignation," City Manager Richard Marsh Jr. said. "There was no reason listed."


    Yost, a full-time, temporary employee, making an annual salary in the high $80,000s or low $90,000s according to Marsh, started in August and will not receive any ongoing pension or benefits. Yost told MLive earlier this month she retired early from the Detroit Police Department, where Melendez also previously worked, before accepting the Inkster job.

    Darrell Gardner's Horsemanship was founded upon four principles: 


    Showing Your Horse Love 
    By expressing love to your horse it helps to build a good relationship and strong bond. This will lead to a better response from your horse. 


    Gaining Respect 
    If you don't have respect on the ground, you won't have it on the saddle. Respect is an essential part of horsemanship and it begins with good ground manners 


    Teaching Obedience 
    Obedience comes with consistent training. This teaches your horse what you expect and how to quickly respond to the cues given. 


    Loyalty between the horse and trainer 
    It all begins with gaining trust. Your initial approach is extremely important. It takes patience and time to get your horse to gain faith in you.
