CANTON — Stark County Sheriff Tim Swanson today fired a deputy who is accused of domestic violence. Swanson said Michael D. McCroskey, 34, can appeal his decision. “But, as of this morning, I gave him his letter, and he’s done,” he said. Swanson declined further comment. McCroskey has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor counts of domestic violence and unlawful restraint. The charges stem from a Dec. 5 incident in Jackson Township. His next court date is Dec. 30 in Massillon Municipal Court. According to court documents, McCroskey pushed a woman while she was holding their infant son, then threatened to kill her and commit suicide. McCroskey had been employed with the Sheriff’s Department since April 19, 2007, working in the county jail. McCroskey also was arrested for domestic violence involving the same woman Aug. 25,.
