FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The Kentucky State Police will investigate whether any laws were broken when former Legislative Research Commission Director Bobby Sherman shredded documents in his Capitol office Sunday, two days after he resigned.

Sgt. Rick Saint-Blancard said Thursday the case has been assigned to the state police special investigations unit.

House Speaker Greg Stumbo had turned over memos to state police on Wednesday, including his own note suggesting that investigators take whatever action they deem appropriate.

Stumbo's move came after Louisville attorney Thomas Clay and House Republican Floor Leader Jeff Hoover called for an investigation. Clay said he's concerned that Sherman might have destroyed documents related to sexual harassment complaints that two legislative staffers filed against former western Kentucky lawmaker John Arnold, who resigned earlier this month.
