The Tulsa World reports the woman released a statement Tuesday after Preston Doerflinger stepped down as interim director of Oklahoma's health department. The resignation followed reports that Tulsa police responded to a call from his then-wife in 2012 saying he had choked her.
Police say the woman filled out a victim's statement but later asked that it not be used because she didn't want Doerflinger to lose his job.
Gov. Mary Fallin said in a statement she had not been made aware of the 2012 report and wished Doerflinger and his family well.
