SISTERS, OR -- A Terrebonne man was arrested Thursday night, accused of assaulting a former employee of his landscaping business. Investigators say 41-year-old Justin Swope and the victim had been arguing via phone and text for several days. Swope and his brother, 37-year-old Jonathan Stark, allegedly went to the victim’s campground, southwest of Sisters, Thursday, in an attempt to end the dispute. 


Deputies say a physical fight began and Stark damaged the victim’s truck with a wooden tool. At one point, Swope fired a pistol several times; no one was hurt. Investigators say the brothers left and hid the pistol on Stark’s Sisters property; it was later recovered by Deputies, with other evidence. 


Swope was arrested during a high-risk traffic stop on Highway 126. He's charged with Assault IV, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Disorderly Conduct II. Stark was cited in lieu of custody, for Criminal Mischief II.
