Madisonville (WVLT) -- New developments out of Monroe County in the wake of an incident that prompted a gunshot at the courthouse.
Yesterday, we reported Monroe County Deputy James Haseltine was escorting a cuffed man out of the courthouse when the man hit him and got away.
Deputy Haseltine fired a warning shot, but it missed and lodged in the courthouse floor.
The fugitive was taken into custody 45 minutes later.
This evening the Monroe County Sheriff's Department says Deputy Haseltine has resigned for "personal reasons".
