Sources: Nashville mayor expected to resign
According to the Huffington Post, Barry's husband, Bruce Barry, seemed to show her support on social media. She was the face of a key ballot referendum coming up in May that will ask voters to shoulder tax increases to help build a $5.4 billion transit system.
However, Barry pleaded guilty Tuesday morning in Davidson County Criminal Court to felony theft of property. She says it has since ended, but she hasn't disclosed when.
Barry tweeted minutes after her resignation, saying that it was the "privilege" and "honor" of her career to serve as mayor. She did not take questions.
On Jan. 31, Mayor Barry admitted to having an affair with Forrest. Her lawyer said in the court hearing that Barry would resign later Tuesday as part of the plea agreement.
She agreed to reimburse the city $11,000 and serve three years of probation. Barry accepted the same plea deal.
Although Barry had sky-high approval ratings in office, her policy agenda hit road blocks recently with the collapse of the Cloud Hill project to redevelop Greer Stadium and the mayor's unexpected proposal to end inpatient services at Nashville General Hospital.
Barry originally said she wouldn't step down, but she couldn't take the heat, so she got out of the mayor seat! Soon after, he learned he would shortly be mayor.
The city's vice-mayor is due to be sworn in as mayor later on Tuesday.
She said nothing illegal happened and no policies were violated.
Nashville has a new mayor. Barry denied those allegations in a statement in early February.
The Tennessee Titans did not comment on the mayor's departure, but they did have a positive working relationship with the city and her office during that period.
"This is a very bad day". "It just happened so fast - going from resigning and pleading guilty and being booked all within hours, I don't think anyone can handle [it all] at this time". "But this is not my worst day", Barry said in January. "But, what I hope they can also see is that people make mistakes, and you move on from those".
Barry had maintained a high profile in the city, appearing routinely at concerts and other events and spearheading a successful effort to bring professional soccer to Nashville. Forrest has since resigned from the force and after the news of the #Extramarital Affair became public his wife filed for a divorce. In addition to this, Forrestgained $173,843.13 in overtime pay from July 2015 to January 2017.

Diablo could be coming to Nintendo Switch
Naturally, followers on social media thought that was supposed to indicate that Diablo was being released to the Switch. Or perhaps Blizzard is being extra coy, because it did not outright deny that Diablo is headed to the Switch.
