NEW ORLEANS -- A New Orleans police officer has resigned while awaiting trial on malfeasance charges.

The NOPD confirmed that officer Samuel Birks resigned Friday amid allegations that he and his partner, Joshua Hunt, claimed to arrest Alvin Bean on drug charges while Hunt was actually at a dentist appointment.

Hunt resigned last month.

A pre-trial conference for both men is set for Aug. 5.
