DV Suspect Arrested a 2nd Time Following Another Violent Assault
Spokane Valley Deputies arrested and booked 23-year-old Chase M. Weiler for three felony domestic violence-related charges. Weiler was previously arrested on May 28, 2019, and charged with two felony and two misdemeanor domestic violence-related charges after the victim reported she was assaulted by him. He was released on May 29, 2019, after posting a $10,000 bond, and a Domestic Violence No Contact Order forbidding Weiler from contacting the victim was issued by the court.
On August 7, 2019, Spokane Valley Deputy Krystal Bitzer responded to the report of a domestic violence assault that occurred the day before. The victim stated an argument on the evening of August 6, 2019, escalated into a violent assault by Weiler. During the assault, Weiler grabbed her by the throat and threw her against the wall, while blaming her for his anger. As the argument continued, Weiler grabbed the victim by the throat again, lifted her from the ground and squeezed, causing her to feel dizzy, light-headed, and her vision to blur. Weiler finally released his grip, and the victim fell to the ground.
During the incident, Weiler punched her and prevented her from leaving until she eventually was able to flee.
Deputy Bitzer observed injuries consistent with the victim’s account of the violent assault. Also, a Domestic Violence No Contact Order was in effect forbidding Weiler from having any contact with the victim.
Weiler was contacted at a residence located in the 7300 block of E. Sinto. After being advised of his rights, Weiler declined to answer any question or provide a statement.
Weiler was booked into the Spokane County Jail for Assault 2nd Degree-Strangulation (DV), Violation of a No Contact Order (DV), and Unlawful Imprisonment (DV) where he remains with a bond totaling $100,000, which includes his charges from last May.
On May 28, 2019, Weiler reportedly was involved in an argument with the victim. The victim explained during the violent assault, Weiler pointed a pistol at her head and grabbed her by the throat, restricting her ability to breath. Weiler was arrested and booked into jail for Assault 1st Degree (DV), Assault 2nd Degree (DV), and two counts of Assault 4th Degree (DV). After his first appearance in court the following day, his bond was set at $10,000. Later that evening, Weiler was released after his bond was secured via a bail bonds company. (Charges later amended two counts Assault 2nd Degree (DV), Harassment (DV), Assault 4 DV)
During the investigation, the pistol believed to have been used during the assault was located by Deputy Natalie Woolard and determined to be a BB gun.
