THIBODAUX, La. - Police Chief Scott Silverii says he has withdrawn his application for the position of police chief in Baton Rouge.

The Daily Comet reports the state Municipal Fire and Police Civil Service Board said Silverii was among 17 applicants approved to take the civil service exam required for consideration.

Silverii says the challenge of policing the state's capital city was something he was initially drawn to after being invited to apply.

But after thinking it through, Silverii says he decided not to pursue the position.

Baton Rouge Mayor Kip Holden fired Police Chief Dewayne White earlier this year.
