    Nothing happened? No, I think the son - who seems to me to have limited choices - said it was appropriate to be hit. And everyone was happy.

    BRIEF: Assault charge dismissed against Eastside officer
    The Wenatchee World
    Dec 23, 2009.

    Dec. 23--EAST WENATCHEE -- A charge of fourth-degree assault against an East Wenatchee police officer has been dismissed, and he returned to work in late November, said Dan Reierson, assistant chief of the East Wenatchee Police Department.

    Officer Gregory W. Renggli had been on administrative leave since the Aug. 11 incident, Reierson said. Renggli, 46, had been accused of striking his 17-year-old son in the chest during a domestic dispute.

    Renggli was not on duty at the time of the incident. Investigation of the case was turned over to the Wenatchee Police Department to avoid a conflict of interest, Randy Harris, East Wenatchee police chief, said in August.

    Doug Shae, deputy prosecutor for Chelan County, said the charge was dismissed after Renggli's son said he thought his father's actions constituted appropriate discipline and the son said he was in favor of the charge being dismissed. The charge was dismissed with prejudice, meaning it cannot be brought up again.
