BUCKHANNON — A Buckhannon man was arrested on a warrant Sunday afternoon following a domestic assault incident that allegedly took place last month.
According to court documents, Douglas Allen Vaughan, age 52, attempted to hit his wife with a vehicle at their Kraft Street home on January 26. Deputy Seth Cutright responded to the scene and reportedly “could see tire tracks in the mud going right where her footprints were” by the building where Vaughan’s wife claimed to be standing when he swerved in attempt to strike her.
Magistrate James D. Moody issued a warrant for Vaughan on January 27, which lead to his arrest on February 7. The accused is currently being held at Tygart Valley Regional Jail on a $2,500 bond set by Magistrate George Riggleman. If convicted of misdemeanor domestic assault, Vaughan faces up to six months in jail and/or a fine of not more than $100. Upon release, the defendant is prohibited from having any contact with the victim pending further order of the court.
