— A Durham County deputy resigned Tuesday, 10 days after he was arrested during a domestic dispute at his home, authorities said Thursday.

Cpl. Larry Kelly had been with the Durham County Sheriff's Office for 13 years.

Durham police arrested Kelly, 42, at his home on March 24 and charged him with two counts of assault on a female.

The sheriff's office immediately placed him on administrative leave, pending the outcome of an internal investigation of the incident, authorities said.
