GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - A southern New Jersey police officer has been charged with aggravated assault.

But Galloway Township police won’t say what led to the charge against Galloway Township officer Ray Glick, except that it stemmed from an off-duty matter.

Authorities announced Tuesday that the 53-year-old Glick has “terminated” his employment and plans to retire. He’s served on the force for 24 years.

Glick received public attention in June 2010 when he fatally shot two dogs that allegedly charged at him when he responded to a call at a township home. An investigation by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office cleared him of any wrongdoing.

Officials said Glick shot the dogs after their owner allegedly allowed them to leave his home and charge at him. Glick shot one dog as it lunged toward him, then the other as it circled around and tried to bite him.
