[Excerpts] A Clackamas County Sheriff's Office major crimes detective will be allowed to keep his weapons despite being accused Monday of fourth-degree assault domestic violence in an incident involving his wife, with whom he has a 5-month-old baby.

When his wife got home about 2 a.m., the two argued. Hyson said she began slapping and punching him while he was holding the baby, spilling a cup of coffee and striking him in the face with an apple. She told deputies that he punched her in the left eye with an orange from the fruit bowl and a deputy noticed a slight redness under her eye, the reports said. She admitted verbally abusing him and slapping him once... Police indicated she thought her sister might have called 911... In court Monday, Phelan, the attorney, asked that in contrast to usual procedure, Hyson be allowed to retain his weapons because of his job and for his personal protection, and the judge agreed. Hyson owns a 9 mm semiautomatic Glock pistol and a 12-gauge Remington shotgun...
