Former deputy allegedly tampers with monitoring bracelet, grabs son and drives toward wife's home

[Excerpts] Former Clackamas County sheriff's deputy Brandon Claggett was arraigned on new charges Friday, July 10, and his bail was increased significantly... He had agreed to release from custody as long as he followed certain rules such as staying away from his family, not possessing a gun and remaining inside his home except for emergencies. He also had to wear an electronic monitoring device. At about 4:30 a.m. Friday, officers were called to the Oregon City residence where Claggett resides. The electronic monitoring device he was wearing had transmitted a tamper alarm. Clackamas County issued an alert that said Claggett should be treated as armed and dangerous. Deputies discovered that Claggett was missing from his home, but later they located him in his pickup, with his son, allegedly heading toward his wife's home in Sandy... The boy was returned unharmed to his mother. Neither Clackamas County Circuit Court Judge Kathie Steele nor Deputy District Attorney Shannon Kmetic is playing games with Claggett. Kmetic and Steele added five contempt of court charges to Claggett's growing list, and Steele changed the bail from its usual 10 percent status to full bail. One of several charges with full bail attached is coercion with a firearm, and the bail is set at $1 million for that charge alone. He also is held on $100,000 bail for unlawful use of a firearm, and $50,000 for five charges of contempt of court. Besides those seven charges, he was jailed on seven other allegations ranging from unlawful possession of a firearm to assault and pointing a firearm at another person, according to current inmate information on the Clackamas County Jail Web site. Three earlier charges have been dismissed. A judge ordered Claggett to wear the monitoring bracelet while awaiting trial set for early September after he was arrested and jailed in April, following an alleged domestic dispute and standoff in Oregon City. He is accused of holding his estranged wife at gunpoint in that incident. Claggett is scheduled to appear in court Friday, July 17. A 14-year veteran of the sheriff's office, Claggett resigned last October following accusations that connected him with sexual flirtation and inappropriate touching of teenage girls during ride-alongs as well as sending and receiving inappropriate sexual images by cell phone. But the district attorney's office declined to charge him in that case. [Full article here]
