A Midland county constable who was arrested twice over the past two years has officially retired and will collect a pension, according to Midland county judge Mike Bradford.
Ted Macklin made his retirement official Monday, Bradford says. His retirement was accepted at Monday’s county commissioner meeting.
Macklin was arrested twice since 2014, according to reports. His latest arrest came this past August when investigators accused him of slapping his girlfriend.
Macklin was also arrested in 2015 after he was accused of assaulting a man in August of 2014. He pleaded not guilty to those charges.
Macklin’s name will still appear on this November’s ballot as a Midland county constable candidate. Bradford says if Macklin is elected, a citizen will have to file a complaint or file a court order.
