A former Wood County deputy is free on bond, facing domestic battery charges for the second time in 18 months. Donald Balog of Mineral Wells was arraigned in Wood County's Magistrate Court for charges involving domestic battery. Balog is free after posting a $1,500 dollar bond. Back in June of 2008, Balog pleaded guilty to one count of domestic battery. The 51-year-old had to complete an anger management course, he could not have contact with the victim, and could not possess or own a firearm. Balog retired from the Wood County Sheriff's Department in August of 2008. [LINK]

  1. He has been arrested for a 3rd time according to the Parkersburg news paper this morning. But they only charged him with 2nd offense cause the last time in Dec 09 it got dismissed due to the victim not being served.
