Former Police Chief Arrested

KSAL StaffFebruary 18, 2016

SAWATOMIE, Kan. (AP) – The former police chief for an eastern Kansas town has been arrested on charges including witness intimidation.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says in a release that Robert Butters, former Osawatomie police chief, was arrested Thursday and is being held on $250,000 bond in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Jail records, however, show Butter’s being without bond. He’s due in court Friday.

The KBI says Butters was arrested on charges of aggravated intimidation of a witness, attempted interference with a law enforcement officer and possession of a firearm while under the influence. The KBI says the charges stem from a recent incident in the Osawatomie area.

Jail records don’t list a lawyer for Butters, who resigned earlier this year as police chief.

The KBI says no other information would be released Thursday.
