GRANDVIEW PLAZA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas police chief arrested last month following a disturbance at his home will not face criminal charges.
Geary County Sheriff Tony Wolf said in a news release Tuesday that an investigation concluded that Grandview Plaza Police Chief Shawn Peirano acted in defense of another person.
Peirano was arrested Oct. 22 after a report of a disturbance. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the incident involved Peirano and a person living with him who wasn’t a spouse or immediate family member.
A special prosecutor reviewed the case and asked the sheriff’s department to conduct an investigation. Wolf says that investigation determined Peirano didn’t commit a crime.
