ELKHORN ­­­— Another case in which former Bloomfield and Genoa City police officer Aaron Henson was the arresting officer was dismissed on Monday afternoon.

Henson is facing a felony charge of misconduct in public office and misdemeanor theft. About one month prior to Henson’s own arrest, he arrested a 22-year-old Volo, Ill., man after a traffic stop.

Henson reported that he clocked the man driving at 118 mph on Highway 12. Henson reported that the driver’s eyes were bloodshot and his speech was slurred.

During a search of the vehicle, Henson reported he found a firearm. The defendant is a convicted felon and is prohibited from owning a weapon.

David D. McDow claimed he didn’t know the weapon was in the vehicle, but he was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

On Monday afternoon he was scheduled for a preliminary hearing. However, the state dropped the charges without prejudice.

During the hearing, Assistant District Attorney Haley Rea said there were “witness issues” in the case.

Henson was arrested after he was filmed allegedly stealing money out of the bond box in Genoa City, where he worked as a part-time officer. Since his arrest, the Walworth County District Attorney’s Office has dropped a number of case in which Henson was the arresting officer.
