By The Associated Press

AURORA — A southeastern Indiana police chief has resigned following his domestic battery arrest last month.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Aurora Police Chief Bryan Fields has resigned effective Friday.

He wrote in his resignation letter to city officials that he feels he needs to take time to concentrate on his family.

The 42-year-old Fields has been police chief of the city about 20 miles southwest of Cincinnati, Ohio, for more than four years.

City officials haven't made any official comment on his Dec. 15 arrest following an incident involving his wife and a 19-year-old son.
