The Calhoun County sheriff is held in jail on charges of domestic abuse and assault on persons of a certain occupation, according to a jailer.
No other information about Scott Anderson's arrest — including the court records associated with the case — was immediately available. He is held in the Webster County jail.
Anderson started working for the sheriff's office more than 30 years ago and was appointed chief deputy in 2006. He was appointed sheriff by the Calhoun County Board of Supervisors in 2017 when his predecessor retired.
Anderson subsequently was elected sheriff in 2018 and is up for re-election this year.
Anderson was divorced last year, according to court records. His ex-wife sought a domestic-abuse protective order against him a week before the divorce was finalized, but she was denied, court records show.
Those who are convicted of domestic abuse cannot possess firearms.
