FREWSBURG – The embattled police chief for the town of Carroll who faced domestic-violence related charges is now back on the job.
On Wednesday night the Town of Carroll town board voted to end Chief Timothy Wright’s period of unpaid leave and return him to his position.
Wright was arrested following an alleged domestic dispute with his wife while driving through the Town of Leon in Cattaraugus County in April. A state police investigation found that Wright allegedly struck his wife several times causing injuries.
However, the assault charge was recently dismissed in Leon town court.
As a result, the town board voted unanimously to return Wright back to the position of Police Chief.
