Wright had suffered a dislocated shoulder in the assault and had surgery Wednesday. He was at home with his wife and 2-year-old daughter when paramedics were called.
Sheriff’s spokesperson Det. Ed Troyer said roughly 50 deputies responded to Shandon Wright’s home in Puyallup.
“He was recovering from recent surgery to repair a duty-related injury and began to have trouble breathing,” said Troyer.
Troyer said paramedics “worked on him as hard as they could, but he passed away. This young man’s life revolved around his family and his sense of duty to the community. We honor him and we will miss him terribly.”
Shandon Wright had been a deputy with Pierce County for five years. A procession went from Wright’s home to the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Details on the assault which caused Wright’s shoulder injury were not immediately available.
Sandusky Oh March 4 2011 Police arrested a man accused of leaving photos at Walmart of partially nude photographs of himself dressed in women’s clothing with his genitals exposed.
Rodney Kunkel, 44, of Toledo, was arrested Thursday morning and charged with two counts of pandering obscenity.
A total of 12 photo-graphs of a semi-nude man appeared Monday on store shelves in the cosmetics department, as well as on the windshields of cars in the parking lot. Store employees collected the photographs and called police.
Security employees turned over surveillance tape showing the man believed to be responsible and his vehicle. When store employees saw the vehicle in their parking lot again on Thursday, they immediately called police.
Officers stopped the car as Kunkel attempted to leave.
He was wearing regular clothes.
Four more photographs were found on the shelves in the cosmetics department.
Fremont police Detective Dean Bliss said Kunkel admitted during questioning that he left behind the photographs showing him from the shoulders down in a pink lingerie top and black fishnet stockings, with his genitals exposed.
“I think he has black high heels on,” Bliss said.
Kunkel, a Toledo resident, has been arrested several times in Lucas County for public indecency.
Kunkel appeared in Fremont Municipal Court on Thursday, where his bond was set at $30,000.
Judge Michael Burkett ordered that if Kunkel posts his bond, he has to undergo a mental health evaluation at Firelands Counseling and Recovery Services for possible treatment before his release from the Sandusky County jail
Lauren Roberts, a JCPS spokeswoman, said the girl was arrested by district security officers and charged with one count of third-degree assault on a school employee, one count of fourth-degree assault on a student and 19 counts of wanton endangerment. Her name was not released because she is a juvenile.
All of the charges except the fourth-degree assault are felonies.
According to school officials, the bus driver, Johnetta Anderson, was dragged off her bus by the ankles Tuesday afternoon and allegedly beaten by the girl and another woman.
Rick Caple, the JCPS director of transportation, said that bus No. 0242 from Stopher Elementary was stopped at West Broadway and South 24th Street to drop off students when the girl and the woman entered the bus.
Anderson tried to stop them but they assaulted her and dragged her off the bus, Caple said.
The doors shut behind the driver, leaving 19 students on the idling bus without an adult for a brief time before the driver was able to free herself, get back on the bus and call for help, Caple said.
Anderson and a 6-year-old student on the bus sustained minor injuries and were transported to local hospitals and later released, Roberts said.
Roberts said there was a family member of the girl and the woman on the bus at the time on the incident.
She said the school bus was equipped with a video camera that captured the entire incident.
Anderson has been with JCPS since August 2008. According to her personnel file, the only disciplinary action she has received was a written warning for speeding on Interstate 64 in 2010.
Roberts said a joint investigation with the Louisville Metro Police Department is ongoing and there could be further arrests.
Thomas Edward Pearson, 58, was arrested Friday and charged with sexual activity by a custodian. In this case, the word “custodian” refers to Pearson’s role as overseer at the facility. The charge is a felony, Burke County officials say.
Pearson has resigned his position at the Burke-Catawba Confinement Center, a jail facility in Morganton shared by Burke and Catawba counties.
According to the police report, Pearson is accused of having a sexual relationship for 14 months with Alicia Camille Goode, 32. Goode was jailed on murder charges, in connection with an August 2007 Burke County case in which a man was killed during what police described as a botched home invasion.
Pearson faces an initial court hearing Monday.
He is being held in the Caldwell County Jail, under $50,000 bond
