(Harrisburg) -- The state attorney general's office is reviewing an agreement under which the Pennsylvania Game Commission would pay its recently retired executive director $220,000 to settle potential legal claims against each other.

The game commission released a two-page agreement from late January that described the payment to Carl Roe but offered no details about what prompted it.

A Game Commission spokesman says Roe hasn't been paid and that no further information was available about the potential legal claims.

Roe retired Jan. 17 from the position he had held since 2005. The "amended and restated agreement and release" was dated 10 days later.

A message left at a Carlisle phone number for Roe wasn't immediately returned.

    Guy should've been fired years ago, and under no circumstances should he be permitted to walk off into the sunset with OUR money!! As a hunter, I find this disgusting.
