Former Deputy Arrested on Domestic Abuse Charge 

A former Deschutes County deputy has been jailed on a string of domestic abuse charges that were first brought to light in 2009.

A former Deschutes County deputy has been jailed on a string of domestic abuse charges that were first brought to light in 2009.

The Deschutes County sheriff’s office said it learned Thursday that former deputy Mike Lopez had been jailed in conjunction with an Oregon State Police (OSP) investigation.

Mike Lopez also faces an official misconduct charge in relation to the arrest, few details of which were offered in a press release Friday.

However, the department acknowledged that the allegations against Mr. Lopez first surfaced in 2009. According to the sheriff’s office, which reportedly looked into the matter with the assistance of the Oregon State Police, there was not sufficient evidence to pursue a case against the deputy who remained on the force until February this year.

Since then, additional information uncovered that led to the renewed investigation by OSP.

Lopez is currently jailed in at the Deschutes County Public Safety Building.
