Man faces charges in Mon and Preston County

KINGWOOD — A Kingwood man charged with multiple crimes in Mon County last week now faces charges in Preston County as well.

Scott Allen Shahan, 42, was in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail Wednesday in lieu of $2,500 bond, charged with domestic assault.

According to the criminal complaint by Preston Deputy R.A. Stockett Jr., a Newburg woman called police Tuesday and said Shahan was breaking items inside the home and threatened to throw things at her and to hit her.

Stockett said Shahan was outside the home when the officer arrived but ran inside and took off all his clothes.

In Monongalia County, Shahan was charged with child neglect, three counts of disarming an officer, domestic assault and battery on an officer. Police said he threatened to throw his child into Cheat Lake, removed all his clothes and fought with police. He was released on $25,000 bond in Mon County.
