ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — A deputy fire chief in Massachusetts has been placed on leave after being charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend and threatening her with her own gun.
Easton Deputy Fire Chief Timothy Griffin is being held without bail after being arraigned in Attleboro Monday on charges including assault and battery.
