Ashly Campbell, the ex-wife of Muskogee Police Investigator Mark Campbell, has recanted her story, which initially claimed he assaulted her after an argument last week.

She initially reported to sheriff’s deputies that Mark Campbell hit her after the argument, but now she says she believes a medical issue may have led to the injury that caused the district attorney to charge him with domestic abuse.

“I have a history of seizures,” she said tonight. “After a seizure I’m usually confused and can’t remember things at all, or correctly, and after time I usually get most of my memory back. Well some time has passed and the more I thought about things, the less they added up regarding my ex-husband hitting me. I actually believe we argued at the house and I left, made it home and had a seizure. I believe I came to and remembered us arguing and got confused about being hit.”

Ashly Campbell has asked the DA to drop the charges against Mark Campbell, but the DA’s office has not returned calls requesting comment on the case.

“The last time I had a seizure, I had a knot on the back of my head exactly like the one on my eye,” Ashly Campbell said. “I believe I was confused at the time and remembered a previous argument where I was intoxicated and fell, cutting my eyebrow years ago. I’ve stopped drinking to that degree since then, but the point is I don’t believe Mark hit me.”

Mark Campbell has been on paid administrative leave from the police department pending the outcome of the case. There is no indication if Ashly Campbell’s recantation will affect that status.
