BEND, Ore. — The former chief of the Sunriver Police Department has pleaded guilty to harassment.

Marc Mills received no jail time at Thursday’s court hearing and was fined $100.

Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel said the chief struck a police sergeant in December during a work-related dispute. Mills resigned last month.

He had been chief of police in the Central Oregon resort community since 2012.
