BULL SHOALS — An Arkansas police chief has agreed to resign and never serve in law enforcement again in exchange for federal prosecutors dropping a charge against him.

The Baxter Bulletin reported that Bull Shoals Police Chief Daniel Sutterfield took the deal Monday. Federal prosecutors have dropped an excessive force charge stemming from a July 2013 arrest.

A federal jury in Harrison found Sutterfield innocent of conspiracy and filing a false report in July. The jury was deadlocked on the excessive force charge. A retrial had been set for August in Fayetteville. He faced up to 10 years in prison.

The prosecutors can initiate the criminal case against Sutterfield if the conditions of the agreement aren't met.
