FREWSBURG – The embattled police chief of the town of Carroll will continue to receive pay while his domestic violence case continues.
The Jamestown Post-Journal is reporting that the Carroll Town Board voted Wednesday to extend Chief Tim Wright’s paid administrative leave for another 30 days.
The extension was granted to accommodate Chief Tim Wright’s upcoming court appearance on Oct. 8 in Leon Town Court.
Wright was charged in July with 3rd degree assault following a State Police investigation into an alleged domestic incident with his wife that occurred on April 5, 2015 as the couple was driving through Leon in Cattaraugus County. At the same time he was charged with assault, the town board placed him on 60-day paid administrative leave.
James Curtis, an investigator with the Carroll Police Department and 20-year member of the Ellicott Police Department, is currently serving as Carroll’s interim-police chief.
