A former Omak police officer was arrested in a domestic violence case involving his son's former girlfriend.
Okanogan County sheriff's office says 47-year-old Douglas G. Johnson
fired a rifle into the ground Thursday as the woman returned to the home
near Tonasket where she had lived with her boyfriend and Johnson. She
wanted to pick up her belongings.
A Tonasket woman was hit by gravel after the father of her ex-boyfriend
allegedly fired a shot by her feet Thursday afternoon. Okanogan County
Sheriff Frank Rogers says 35 year old Brianna Hicks told deputies that
she had broken up with her boyfriend, 23 year old Tyler Kion, earlier
that day. She had been living with Kion and his father, 47 year old
Douglas G. Johnson at a residence near Tonasket for several months.
Rogers says Johnson, a former Omak police officer, reportedly did not
say anything to Hicks before opening fire and was uncooperative with law
enforcement at the scene. He was booked into the Okanogan County Jail
on a charge of 1st Degree Assault-Domestic Violence.
