A Madison County sheriff's deputy resigned today after he was
arrested and charged two weeks ago following a high-speed chase
through the county.
Scott Bishop, 39, allegedly fled from two state game wardens
after they caught him spotlighting deer early Dec. 30.
The chase ended when Bishop ran over a set of spike strips.
State game wardens charged Bishop with hunting deer at night,
hunting from a public road, hunting without a written permit,
hunting by aid of a motor vehicle, locating wildlife by the aid of
artificial light and hunting with illegal ammunition.
The sheriff's department charged him with reckless endangerment.
