Arkansas Sheriff Reverses Course, Says He Will Retire
An Arkansas sheriff who pleaded guilty to resisting arrest and public intoxication has reversed course once again and now says he will retire.
Saline County Sheriff Bruce Pennington said in a letter dated Friday that he will retire effective Oct. 1.
Pennington said the same thing on Aug. 30, but he later changed his mind and said he wanted to finish his term and run for re-election.
Pennington didn't immediately respond to a phone message on Friday, and his latest letter doesn't explain why he changed his mind again.
He pleaded guilty last month to resisting arrest and public intoxication. The charges followed his arrest in late June.
