Vermont’s Attorney General’s Office dismissed all charges against a former Woodstock police officer earlier this month, accused of assaulting his wife on two separate occasions. 45-year-old Mark McComas was arrested earlier this year on allegations he held a knife to his wife’s throat back in 2012, and pulled her off their bed in February of this year.
McComas faced one felony charge for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and a misdemeanor count of domestic assault – which were dismissed when the AG’s office couldn’t secure his wife as a witness. According to the Valley News, the McComas’s have since gotten back together, and have moved down to South Carolina where they were married in 2006.
The family moved to Quechee, Vermont in 2010 after McComas accepted a position as a patrol officer for the Woodstock Police Department, but he was fired from that role shortly after charges were brought against him.
