DELAWARE, Ohio — The county sheriff's fall from the top was swift and certain, yet Walter L. Davis III resigned from public office yesterday still maintaining his innocence, refusing to answer questions about his personal life and pointing fingers at others for what had transpired.

Davis, a Republican, was under investigation over how he spent money during the 10 weeks last summer when he was at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Va., and whom he spent it on.

He was reimbursed for money spent renting a car, parking at an Arlington, Va., hotel and dining out with others, according to receipts he filed with his office. He refused to answer questions about who he was with on those outings.
