Perryville, AR - A Perry County deputy has resigned after being cited for hunting out of season while on duty.
Sheriff Scott Montgomery says Phillip Rappold violated Arkansas Game and Fish regulations Friday while on duty. He says that Rappold has been with the sheriff's office for quite some time, first as a jailer and the past year as a patrol deputy.
The sheriff confirms the deputy was on duty and was in uniform when he was cited in the eastern part of Perry County prior to the opening of modern gun deer season.
Virginia Porter with Arkansas Game and Fish says the deputy was cited for hunting out of season and for hunting from a roadway.
