A Maine police chief accused of choking a woman with whom he'd had an affair has resigned.
Dover-Foxcroft Police Chief Ryan Reardon submitted a one-sentence resignation letter Friday, but did not specify his reasons for quitting.
Reardon was arrested last month on charges of aggravated assault and criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon. A judge set bail at $5,000 with stipulations including a prohibition on possessing weapons and contacting the victim, along with a requirement for a mental health evaluation.
