Owenby was arrested earlier this month for assaulting officers and resisting arrest. The outstanding charges were served on him at that time.

According to an earlier news release, at approximately midnight on Sunday, Nov. 1, Deputies Cody, David Jones and Steven McPeters responded to a possible domestic dispute at Owenby’s residence.

 The deputies learned before arriving that there were three outstanding warrants for Owenby’s arrest. When they arrived on the scene and attempted to take the suspect into custody, he began fighting and assaulted all three officers in the process.
Owenby has previously been convicted of altering a serial number, obtaining property by false pretense and simple assault.
