State Trooper Charged With Assault, Threats

Associated Press - June 27, 2014 2:31 pm

A Kansas Highway Patrol trooper faces multiple felony charges stemming from a domestic dispute with his wife.

A complaint filed Friday charges 37-year-old Darrin Duane Hirsh of Great Bend with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of criminal threat, domestic battery, two counts of witness intimidation and two counts of violation of a restraining order.

Hirsh was released on a $50,000 bond after his arrest Thursday night. A first court appearance is scheduled for July 21. It wasn’t immediately clear Friday whether Hirsh has an attorney. A phone number listed at his address rang unanswered.

The aggravated assault charge stems from a 2013 incident during which he allegedly threatened his wife with a handgun.

The patrol says Hirsh is on leave without pay pending an internal investigation.
