sheriff's deputy has been suspended without pay after he was arrested last week for allegedly pulling two handguns on his girlfriend.

Matthew Brandon Terry, 29, was charged Wednesday with brandishing a deadly weapon and domestic assault, according to a criminal complaint filed in Cabell County Magistrate Court.

Jamie Yates, Terry's live-in girlfriend, called police to their home along Lower Creek Road, in Milton, because she feared for her life, according to the complaint.

Yates told police they had been arguing when Terry pulled out a handgun and she grabbed it from him. Terry allegedly retrieved another handgun a few minutes later.

Yates then fled and hid underneath the home, according to the complaint, where she called police and waited until they arrived.

Terry was arrested and arraigned before Cabell County Magistrate Betty Wolford. He was taken to Western Regional Jail and later released after posting a $10,000 bond. Wolford set an Oct. 30 preliminary hearing on the charges.

Mason Sheriff Michael Roach did not return phone calls Monday. Mason Commission President Rick Handley said County Administrator John Gerlach notified him of Terry's arrest on Thursday. Gerlach said Terry was suspended for 30 days without pay pending an investigation into the incident.

In March, former Mason County Sheriff David Anthony pleaded guilty in circuit court to misdemeanor charges of brandishing and firing a weapon near a dwelling. He also pleaded no contest to fraudulent schemes and embezzlement.

As part of the plea, Anthony resigned as sheriff and surrendered his law enforcement certification.

Counties are not the only ones who beat on their wives. These woman need to wake up and get away from the scum before it is too late.

His dad works there too! His dad is a deputy too? His dad probably got him his job?, etc. What's with the obsession with all of that? Forrest can't be held anymore accountable for Matt's actions, than your dad can be held accountable for your adult actions and decisions. I think it's pretty common for a parent to want their offspring to follow in their footsteps with careers, etc, but if they can't make the cut it doesn't mean that it's the parents fault. As most parents now a days know, you can't control and change the things that our young adults do and get themselves into! Forrest is a pretty fair and decent deputy, and as a parent, I'm sure that he's ashamed and embarrassed over Matt's actions, but ultimately he can't help what his adult son's actions are.

Maybe it's the "voices" in their head telling them to do it!

Well that's a good point there. Most offspring do things they've seen as ok in there childhood. Men just don't wake up one day and decide to be a women beater. It's something they witnessed as a child over an over. Making them think it's the right thing to do.

I don't believe anybody on this thread said anything about the father being accountable for Matthew Terry's actions. I think they were just pointing out that it is odd that they both work for Mason Co. Sheriff's Dept when the unemployment rate is so high in this county. The only issue they were bringing up concerning the father is nepotism.

Generally speaking, Yes, most do, but your assumption in this case may not be totally correct in facts, perhaps you're a younger less inexperienced Doctor., or not a Doctor at all, or are still in need to doing some case studies of similar and varied situations! In taking the time to do so, you might be a little amused to find that this is not always the case scenario. Sometimes, what appears to be the most obvious in certain cases is not necessarily always the basis of the situation!

Just in case you didn't read my commit correctly. It said most! "not" all. Depending on which case study your referring to. If you have any kind of Dr. Back ground in this study. You should know. There are studies that support what I said. And there are those that don't support it. Just depends on which study you read.
