Oregon State Police Spokesman Hit With Restraining Order, Placed on Leave

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The estranged wife of an Oregon State Police spokesman has obtained a restraining order against him.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reported Friday that the petition was filed on the same day Capt. Bill Fugate (FEW-gate) was placed on paid administrative leave because of a criminal investigation.

The Fugates have been going through a divorce. The restraining-order petition says Georgina Monrean-Fugate contacted the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday to report that her husband had threatened her in November while possessing a gun.

Deschutes County Sheriff Shane Nelson declined to discuss the criminal investigation, but said it began after a complaint was received Tuesday, and it has nothing to do with Fugate's conduct on the job.

The restraining order prohibits Fugate from possessing firearms or going within 500 feet of his wife. Fugate did not return a call seeking comment.
