NC sheriff replaces sheriff with bipolar disorder

Friday, March 9th, 2012

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) – A new sheriff is taking over in
Henderson County, replacing a predecessor who retired for health
reasons he blamed on bipolar disorder.

Charlie McDonald was sworn in as head of the sheriff’s
department he served for 25 years before retiring in 2010.
Former Sheriff Rick Davis left in November and started his
medical retirement last week after allegations of misconduct. He
had been sheriff since 2006.

The county paid $5,000 as part of a settlement of a lawsuit
involving Davis and a female sheriff’s office employee. County
officials said they were given no details of the case.

McDonald was chosen by the local Republican Party leadership
from 11 candidates because his predecessor was elected as a

McDonald will serve the rest of Davis’ term, which ends in 2014.
