Sheriff Skrah was booked and released at 3:50 a.m. Monday morning on nine counts of misdemeanor criminal charges.
While Skrah can’t go on patrol or have any contact with suspects or inmates, he remains in office.
Eight of the nine charges accuse Skrah of using excessive force during three separate incidents.
The Oregon Department of Justice began their criminal investigation of Skrah in April.
Skrah’s next appearance in court will be October 19th.
