[UT] Fired Swat Officer Henderson Opens fire - Lt Terry comforts the targeted ex.

January 2006
Arthur (Art) Henderson was fired from the Lehi Police Department in 2004 after being charged with assault and was due back in court on Monday. He's a former amateur boxer proficient in martial arts, had been a use-of-force instructor for the Lehi Police Department and is a former SWAT officer. This week, he chased down his ex-wife's boyfriend in a car chase, rammed his truck into the boyfriends car, shot him twice, shot at his ex-wife and officers - and even a car passing with a family in it took a bullet. Officers shot Henderson.

The boyfriend had to be airlifted to Salt Lake for hospital care. Both will be okay.

In February 2005 his ex-wife wrote down incidents from 14 years of domestic violence while applying for a protection order, like

...being grabbed, having her head put THROUGH a wall, getting hit in the head with a box of bullets, repeately threatening to kill her - with their their kids trying to jump in - kicking her so hard her leg was bruised to the bone, bumps on her head, bruises on her body, holding a gun to her head...

"I went to my knees on the closet floor
and begged him
not to shoot me."
