MORGANTOWN — Law enforcement officers acted correctly in their use of force to arrest a suspect who endangered his daughter and prevented a worse outcome, Chief Deputy Al Kisner of the Monongalia County Sheriff’s Department said.

No officers involved in the incident were seriously harmed, he said.

“The overall outcome was excellent,” he said. “It could have been much worse.”

Scott Shahan, 42, of Kingwood, is charged with child neglect creating risk of injury, three counts of disarming an officer, domestic assault and battery on an officer, following the Feb. 25 incident.
