[Excerpts] The arrest of a Pierce County sheriff’s deputy on suspicion of domestic violence last week came after his girlfriend dialed 911 and told operators she thought he was going to kill her, court records show.
Bonney Lake police arrived at a house on Church Lake Drive to find a frantic woman, blood spots, moved furniture and a sheriff’s patrol car, according to the documents, released Thursday. The deputy, Mario Carey, 37, was charged Wednesday with fourth-degree domestic violence assault... The woman told officers that Carey had been abusive before and had hit her in the nose, the documents state. She asked officers to “rough him up” but not arrest him, because he was part of the law enforcement “brotherhood,” the documents state. Officers said she changed her account several times, saying she never should have called police and that she didn’t want to “incriminate her man any further.” Officers arrested Carey, and a sheriff’s sergeant came to take Carey’s patrol car and weapons from the residence. When officers told Carey he was under arrest, according to the documents, he replied, “Fine. Just book me, bro. I know you have to do your job”... The department will conduct an internal investigation. [Full article here]
