Madison County deputy Lt. Mark McCarty resigned last week after he was arrested in Barrow County on battery and false imprisonment charges.
According to Madison County Chief Deputy Captain Mike Benner, McCarty was arrested by Barrow County deputies on July 26 following a domestic violence complaint involving a girlfriend. After his release on bond, he resigned his post at the Madison County sheriff’s office.
McCarty had returned to the sheriff’s office last fall, after working with the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office. McCarty previously worked for Madison County for several years as a lieutenant, Benner said.
I appreciate the above comments concerning Kip Thomas and his character as a deputy. Very interesting.... I wouldn't limit the lack of character just to these two men within the department. There are definitely others with issues as well.
