MONITOR — A sharpened animal bone and two railroad spikes were used in an assault on a Chelan County sheriff’s deputy Saturday afternoon.
Neither the suspect nor the deputy were injured in the altercation, said Mike Harris, chief of patrol for the Sheriff’s Office.
Robert L. Chanley, 62, of Wenatchee, was booked into the Chelan County Regional Justice Center on suspicion of second-degree assault and disorderly conduct.
About 3:15 p.m., Deputy Brett Peterson responded to a call about a man bouncing a basketball in both westbound lanes of Highway 2/97 near Monitor, Harris said in a press release. The suspect refused to obey Peterson’s commands, and then reached for the animal bone, which was in his waistband.
The deputy and Chanley fought and Peterson was able to get the suspect to drop the bone. While arresting Chanley, the deputy also had to wrest two railroad spikes from Chanley, according to the press release. After the arrest, Chanley was found to also have two sharp pieces of glass, a rock and a small pocket knife.
