PHOENIX (AP) - The man who recently resigned as chairman of the Arizona Game and Fish Commission was the subject of multiple allegations of sexual harassment of state employees.
The Arizona Republic reports that records indicate that Game and Fish Department workers told a human-resources supervisor that Jack Husted gave them surprise hugs and made inappropriate suggestions.
Husted unexpectedly resigned as commission chairman last week, saying in his resignation letter he had decided to "embark on a new chapter" in his life.
Husted didn't immediately return a call Thursday from The Associated Press.
However, the Republic said Husted said in a statement that he apologized for any misunderstanding resulting from what he called his "personal style of communication."
The five-member commission establishes policies for guiding the management and preservation of wildlife.
