George Elmaraghy told The Associated Press he was escorted from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency's headquarters half a day early Friday because the agency's director didn't want to leave him unsupervised. He said Director Scott Nally personally walked him out at noon.
A message was left with the agency seeking comment.
Elmaraghy authored a widely distributed August email alleging pressure from the coal industry was at play in a request for his resignation. He served 39 years at the Ohio EPA, most recently as head of its Division of Surface Water.
He told the AP he is weighing his legal options.
