    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.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    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
