Ind. mayor asks police to stop ticketing



BLUFFTON, Ind. — A northern Indiana city's mayor has asked police officers to stop writing traffic tickets after the city court judge quit only two weeks after starting the part-time position.

Gary Markley submitted his resignation to Mayor Ted Ellis on Jan. 15, citing poor record keeping by his predecessor, his own "limited technology skills" and a "lack of knowledge of the requirements of the court system."

Gov. Mitch Daniels will appoint Markley's replacement.
