Charges against a former Winterville police lieutenant have been dropped in Pitt County.
Eric Stallings was arrested September 2nd by Greenville police on a charge of communicating threats.
The 40-year-old Stalling resigned from the police department shortly after his arrest. He had been with Winterville for "nine or ten years" according to the police chief.
The Clerk of Court's Office says the charge was dismissed when Stallings appeared in court last week.
