A warrant has been filed for a Pulaski County deputy accused of ramming a marina gate in July.
According to Garland County court records, prosecutors plan to charge Pulaski County Lt. Corey Lawson with 1st degree felony criminal mischief, a crime that could carry a penalty of 3-10 years in prison and/or a fine of $10,000.
Garland County deputies say back in July, Lt. Lawson got into a fight with his girlfriend at Brady Mountain Marina in Royal.
Deputies say Lawson pushed her before he got into his truck and rammed an electronic security gate twice, tearing it from its hinges.
Marina officials told deputies the damage was estimated between $10,000 and $15,000.
Preliminary bond for Lt. Lawson has been set at $7,500. He has not yet been arrested.
After the incident, Brady Mountain Marina officials indicated they did not want to pursue charges.
It's unclear at this time why prosecutors decided to move forward.
In August, Pulaski County Sheriff Doc Holladay suspended Lt. Lawson for four weeks without pay for the incident, citing a policy requiring that the Office be portrayed positively.
Pulaski County Sheriff's deputies could not immediately be reached for comment regarding the new developments.
