Controversial Police Officer Elected Sheriff


A controversial Portland Police officer is moving on, securing the votes to be a county sheriff.  Chris Humphreys was elected to serve as Wheeler County Sheriff.  The Oregonian reports Humphreys was scrutinized for his involvement in the officer-involved use-of-force case that resulted in the death of James Chasse in 2006.  And in 2009, he was involved in the bean-bag shooting of an unruly teen girl on a Max Platform. Humphreys had collected stress-related disability payments from the City of Portland intermittently for three years before deciding he was ready to run for Wheeler County Sheriff, where he worked as a deputy before working for Portland.
