Charges Dropped Against Former Martin County Deputy

Charges were dropped today against a deputy sheriff who was arrested on charges he assaulted his girlfriend in Greenville earlier this month.

WITN News has also learned that Deputy Christopher Johnson is no longer with the Martin County Sheriff's Office.

Johnson was accused of punching his girlfriend in the mouth, knocking her two front teeth loose. He was hired as a deputy in May 2010 and before that was a police officer trainee in Greenville for three months prior to that.

The former deputy was placed on administrative leave with pay right after his arrest.
