[KY] Deputy Scotty Hill's wife suffered bruises to her cheek, arms and knee - and she says he threatened murder-suicide


Before becoming a sheriff's deputy
for Boone County, Scotty Hill was
a Newport Police officer. 


Boone County sheriff's Deputy Scotty D. Hill's wife suffered bruises to her cheek, arms and knee Tuesday night after a domestic assault. She told police that he was threatening to shoot her and then kill himself. Hill was charged with alcohol intoxication and domestic violence. "The man's wife actually called one of our [Boone County sheriff's] deputies on his cellphone and said, 'Can you get down here and help me out? Scotty's been drinking and he just kicked in a door.'" In 2008 off-duty Deputy Hill, his wife, Florence Police Officer [R.H.], and their teenage daughter went to pick up a purchased horse and while there he shot and killed the property owner, 55 year old Brenda Pollitt. Pollitt was said to be armed and was shot in self-defense but her family does not agree. The grand jury found there was not enough evidence to charge Hill.

Brenda Pollitt's sister Jill Johnson:
"He shot my sister in the back..."
EXCERPTS FROM NEW AND OLD ARTICLES:
  • ...The phone went dead. When deputies arrived they found Scotty Hill at the intersection of Poole Road and Mudlick Verona Road.  They said he was drunk, armed and riding a horse...
  • ...Hill was also suspended in 2008 after he was involved in a fatal shooting incident while he was off duty.  In that incident, Kentucky State Police said Hill fatally shot 55-year-old Brenda Pollitt after she pointed a gun at him and threatened to shoot...
  • ...In 2008, while off-duty, he shot and killed a woman in Nicholas County while trying to buy a horse from her nephew.  It was self-defense...
  • ...Boone County Deputy Scotty Hill fatally shot 55-year-old Brenda Pollitt after she pointed a gun at him late Monday and threatened to shoot... Also present at the scene was Hill's wife, Regina, who is a 9-year-veteran of the Florence Police Department. Officer Regina Hill has also been placed on paid administrative leave, pending the completion of an investigation...
  • ...Brenda May Pollitt, 55, was shot five times from 6 to 8 feet away by a .40-caliber police weapon. Two entry wounds were in Pollitt's back... [Nicholas County Coroner Billy] Clark said that he could not confirm Pollitt had a gun; both weapons apparently had been confiscated before he was called to the scene...
  • ...Brenda Pollitt's family feels justice was not served. Pollitt's sister spoke out for the first time... "They couldn't even look at me and then they looked at me, and he would just hang his head and his wife was shaken and it was awful." That's what Jill Johnson recalls of this morning's court proceedings when the Nicholas County Grand Jury said there wasn't enough evidence to charge Boone County Sheriff's Deputy Scotty Hill with anything in regard to the shooting death of Johnson's sister, 55 year old Brenda Pollitt. "He shot my sister in the back, bullet come out of her chest...I want justice and it's what my family wants... I want the man that shot my sister in the back put away"...
  • ...Deputy Hill is still on administrative leave. We're told it will stay that way until he's ready to come back. The sheriff says the department has always supported Hill...
  • ... "She [Brenda May Pollitt] backed [Boone Sheriff's Deputy Scotty Hill] up with the gun. He told her to put the gun down. She didn't and then he did what he needed to do," [Nicholas County Sheriff Dick] Garrett said... "Obviously he's rattled," [Boone County Sheriff's Lt. Col. Rob] Reuthe told the Kentucky Enquirer. "He's a family guy"...
