BENJAMIN MCCLAIN, 53 who has been a police officer at Sharpsburg Police Department and most recently Middlesex Police Department among other agencies was arrested for assaulting a female back on January 16th of this year. Due to that incident a Domestic Violence Protection order was put in place. MCCLAIN has violated that order and was arrested this morning and placed in the Wilson County Jail under no bond.
Middlesex Police Department stated in January that they hired a new officer to take MCCLAIN’S place stating that he left for “personal reasons” after only being there for three months.
It is unclear at this time how he violated the order.
