LAKE ZURICH, Ill. (AP) - The fire chief in the northeastern Illinois community of Lake Zurich has resigned following his arrest on suspicion of attacking his estranged wife during an argument.

Fifty-four-year-old David Wheelock was arrested May 4 and is accused of shoving his estranged wife into a wall and threatening her. He is charged with domestic battery. His attorney, Christina Ivashchenko, says Wheelock denies the accusations.

Lake Zurich Mayor Thomas Poynton confirmed Friday that Wheelock submitted his resignation four days after the arrest.

The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1HntMqc ) that Wheelock worked for the village for 36 years.
