    Thumbs down Bad : Mason Co. WV Sheriff Arrested, Shooting Over A Teen's Head.

    Next County above mine. This isn't looking good for their Sheriff. Most of our Sheriff's teach or have the Deputies teach the classes for Concealed Carry Permits. I'm in Cabell Co. WV and our Sheriff is really good at it.

    Apparently the Mason Co. WV Sheriff is a doufus.


    Mason County sheriff charged with firing gun over teen's head

    POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. — Mason County Sheriff David Anthony found himself behind bars Friday morning.

    West Virginia State Police Sgt. Edward Starcher said Anthony was arrested following a traffic stop along U.S. 35 in Putnam County.

    That’s where troopers executed an arrest warrant charging Anthony with felony wanton endangerment. The allegation stems from a Nov. 5 incident, where Starcher said two deputy sheriffs witnessed Anthony fire a gunshot over a 13-year-old’s head.

    Investigators believe alcohol may have been a factor in the incident, Starcher said.

    The sergeant said members of the Mason County Commission and its Prosecutor’s Office alerted state troopers to the incident via letter and asked for an investigation, Starcher said.

    Anthony was incarcerated at 1:30 a.m. Friday at the Western Regional Jail. Bond was denied pending arraignment.

    Voters elected the 42-year-old as Mason County’s sheriff in November 2008. He had resigned as a deputy months earlier to campaign for the top post. He had been with the Sheriff’s Office since 1990.

    Prior to becoming sheriff, Anthony had been involved with the county’s D.A.R.E. program for five years.

    Ugh. "Investigators believe alcohol may have been a factor in the incident" Double ugh. Ya think?

    Back when I used to drink alcoholic beverages I don't recall ever thinking it might be a good idea to shoot a firearm over anybodys head,sounds like his Deputies felt the same way

    Judging from the time of arrest and the muggy, there's still a problem.

    Curious. No details of the shooting and really odd, denied bond.

    ^^^^^^^Was thinking the same thing^^^^^^^^^



    Maybe those in the know feel the sheriff has perhaps a dark side.

    And , it is odd that no details of the incident are provided.

    Maybe some of his deputies do not like working under him, and they are maybe trying to frame him?

    If the incident did indeed happen, it should be a stark reminder to people in power that not all who serve under you will agree with your actions, and will rat you out. (not implying, if true they shouldn't have)
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    Not many details, it would be interesting to find out the rest of the story.

    Alcohol and guns don't mix.
