Ellettsville Marshal Resigns, Can't Pass Physical Tests

Last updated on Thursday, March 13, 2008

(ELLETTSVILLE) - Town Marshal Gary Darland dropped 24 pounds training for the rigorous physical tests he needed to pass to keep his job.

But after less than a year on the job, Darland resigned about five weeks before he would have faced a 300-meter sprint, a 1.5-mile run and other physical challenges.

The 62-year-old says he realized the battery of physical tests would have been impossible for him to pass. Officer Tony Bowlen was named the new Marshal.
