[Excerpts] Hardeman County - A Whiteville police officer accused of beating up his girlfriend is in the clear Tuesday after a judge dropped the charges against him. The Whiteville Police Department put Officer Jason Wilson on paid administrative leave after the county issued a warrant for his arrest last week... The judge dropped a domestic assault and vandalism charge against Wilson after his girlfriend testified she no longer wanted to press charges. "Each of us is responsible for our own actions. I think probably his integrity will require him to be responsible for his," said Capt. Stanley. Whiteville police said Wilson resigned from the department immediately after the court appearance. "I think officially he is just probably trying to gather his thoughts and make sure his integrity is intact," said Capt. Stanley. Despite the situation, officials at the Whiteville Police Department said they still consider Wilson an excellent police officer. "He takes time. He investigates things and he has a very good concept of law enforcement and the criminal justice system," said Capt. Stanley. Wilson worked at the Whiteville Police Department for about a month, and before that he served as an officer in Bolivar. Both departments said they never had any complaints with Wilson. Wilson's girlfriend, Elizabeth Thompson (Johnson), was also arrested on a vandalism charge. The judge dropped that charge as well.  [LINK]
