LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - On Monday, Lubbock Police said Deputy Chief Leath McClure has resigned from the department.

McClure was arrested last month, and was released from the Lubbock County Detention Center a week later after his bond was lowered.

McClure is accused of holding a gun to co-worker’s head. The victim in this case applied for a protective order and was granted by the court.

Judge Douglas Freitag, presiding over the 140th District Court, reduced McClure’s bond to $100,000.

According to court documents, his attorney David Guinn says McClure, who was arrested for aggravated assault and family violence charges, was being held unlawfully.
