KALISPELL - A Flathead deputy county attorney was arrested over the weekend and cited for partner family member assault.
Kenneth Park was arrested on Friday night, Flathead County Attorney Ed Corrigan said. Corrigan added that it doesn't appear Park physically assaulted his wife and that the confrontation was verbal.
Corrigan added alcohol wasn't involved in the incident, and said Park was seen by a justice of the peace over the weekend, and released on his own recognizance.
The case will be turned over to the Montana Attorney General's Office or an outside prosecutor, with Corrigan saying that under the circumstances, he doesn't feel it's appropriate for his department to handle the incident.
