Charges against Middleton Mayor Darin Taylor have been dropped, according to the Canyon County Prosecutor's office.

Taylor was arrested earlier this year on a domestic battery charge. According to an affidavit, the Canyon County Sheriff's Office says Taylor grabbed his wife during a fight.

The Middleton City Council had urged the mayor to resign following his arrest, but Taylor said he would not resign and would finish his term--although he would not seek re-election in November.

He had been charged with misdemeanor domestic battery.
