The city's police chief, charged with assault and battery after a fight outside a nightclub, has stepped down.
Wayne Yates resigned as head of the Winnsboro Department of Public Safety after being charged last week.
Authorities said Yates shoved a man to the ground during a fight outside Bubba's Nightclub earlier this month. Yates said he decided to resign because of the charge and also to focus on ill family members.
Attempts to reach him Tuesday were unsuccessful.
