Fire Chief Wants His Arrest Record Expunged

A southern Indiana fire chief arrested for battery is not going to face criminal charges and now he wants his arrest records erased.

Eyewitness News first broke the story about Cannelton Fire Chief Christopher Herzog in late December.

Herzog was charged with felony battery after he allegedly pushed a police officer while fighting a fire.

Herzog's attorney, Todd Corne, says the Perry County Prosecutor won't take the case to court.

Corne says Herzog should never have been arrested and he plans to ask the circuit court to expunge Herzog's arrest record.

Corne says it could take a couple of weeks, but he doesn't expect any problems.

Herzog said over the phone Tuesday that he is waiting on a chance to tell his story but he didn't elaborate.

Eyewitness News will continue to watch for developments.
