Police Chief stripped of his gun following a domestic dispute with his wife
CRESTVIEW — The city’s police chief was prohibited Wednesday from carrying a weapon following a dispute with his wife.
“I’m going to petition the court to carry a weapon while on duty,” Police Chief Brian Mitchell said Wednesday evening.
He said he planned to speak to a judge Thursday.
Mitchell said his wife, Candice Mitchell, has alleged he “threatened to harm her” over the phone Tuesday. Attempts by the Daily News to reach her Wednesday in Crestview were unsuccessful.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office served Mitchell a written injunction Wednesday.
The suspension of Mitchell’s weapons privilege is a standard component of the injunction process, police say. Mitchell said a provision exists for law enforcement officers to carry duty weapons.
He also is not allowed within 500 feet of his wife or her vehicle. A judge will hold a probable cause hearing April 29 to determine if her claims are valid.
Details of the couple’s dispute are unclear, but Mitchell said they were recently separated. He said he last saw her Friday when he went with another person to retrieve some of his belongings from their house.
Okaloosa County Circuit Judge Terry Ketchel and Crestview Mayor David Cadle did not immediately return phone calls seeking comment.

sounds like routine policy to me....
any personal domestic involving a threat in our dept puts you on the desk until your hearing is heard.http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl
We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion
