Middletown Police Chief Roger Ashley has been released from jail, after posting a $5,000 secured bond.
Ashley was arrested twice in Strasburg on March 12 and charged with driving under the influence. He had been ordered held without bond by a General District Court Judge following a March 14 hearing.
Shenandoah County Sheriff Timothy Carter says that since his arrest, Ashley has undergone two psychiatric evaluations and was released on bond after the second evaluation.
Carter says Ashley is expected to go to a rehabilitation center for treatment. He's due in court April 11 for a hearing on the DUI charges. The Middletown Town Council has suspended Ashley indefinitely.
