Bart Alsbrook is reportedly planning to resign as the interim police chief in Colbert, Oklahoma after various reports surfaced linking him to white supremacist and neo-Nazi websites.
Alsbrook is blaming the paper trail connecting him to the sites ISD Records and NS88 Videos on a case of identity theft.
“Someone has been using my name for years on the Internet in regards to racist topics,” Alsbrooks told the Tulsa World. “It’s not me, rather someone who has hijacked my name due to my combativeness and rejection to white power skinheads who were always coming to the heavy metal shows, starting fights and messing up our scene.”
Things began with a “hate map” published by the Southern Poverty Law Center after Heather Heyer was killed and others were injured by white supremacists at a “Unite the Right” rally on August 12. The map identified ISD Records as a prominent hate group operating near the Texas-Oklahoma border.
Texoma Fox affiliate KXII further investigated the founding of ISD Records, and their search turned up the alleged links between law enforcement and a known white supremacist.
“We tracked down the certificate of ownership of ISD Records filed at the Grayson County Courthouse in 2004 with the signature of a Bart Alsbrook at a Denison address,” reported KXII.
According to a Newsweek report, Alsbrook plans to resign, citing the safety of his family as his chief concern.
News of Alson’s alleged white supremacist ties comes roughly three months after Tulsa, Oklahoma police officer Betty Shelby was acquitted for killing an unarmed Terrence Crutcher during what was reported as a routine traffic stop. It should be noted Shelby had no known connections to any white supremacist groups.
A 2006 FBI report that has since been declassified entitled “FBI White Supremacist Infilatration of Law Enforcement” would seem to corroborate anecdotal cases such as those of Alsbrook and the D.C. officer photographed with a suspected neo-Nazi shirt back in June.
The Colbert Police Department hasn’t released an official response to the allegations against Alsbrook at this time.
