Deputy resigns in wake of illegal hunting arrest

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.

Authorities have not yet commented on the status of those charges.
