Man’s gun permit under review after alleged harassment


WALLA WALLA — Walla Walla County sheriff’s deputies arrested a 31-year-old man on investigation of felony harassment after the man reportedly threatened to kill a Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher.

The Walla Walla County Sheriff’s Office is also reviewing the man’s concealed handgun license.

According to a Walla Walla County Sheriff’s Office report, Michael D. Sheasley called Umatilla County dispatch and claimed to be an Oregon senator’s son and demanded to be transferred to Portland dispatch or have a pepperoni pizza delivered to his house in the 1700 block of Old Milton Highway.

When Walla Walla deputies arrived, Sheasley invited them in and said he had just ordered pizza and they were welcome to have some when it arrived.

Dispatchers advised the two deputies that Sheasley had a concealed pistol license, and when deputies asked Sheasley if there were any weapons in the house, he replied that his body was a registered weapon.

Sheasley was arrested on investigation of felony harassment, and lodged at the Walla Walla County Jail.

Chief Deputy John King said deputies have had contact with Sheasley numerous times in recent weeks.
