Findlay’s former acting police chief made nearly $53,000 while on administrative leave last year. The Courier reports the city placed Sean Young on paid administrative leave last February. It lasted until the end of September. The city made the move after allegations of domestic violence came to light.

Human resources director Donald Essex tells the newspaper the financial number doesn’t include items like medical insurance, pension, or Medicare.

Young initially pleaded guilty to a domestic violence charge after he threw a video camera at his wife during their daughter’s birthday party. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss it as long as Young completed a diversion program and served 70 hours of community service.
