Bryan Hill, 61, and Tracy Remington, 53, were taken into custody on March 15 after a “short stand-off” at their Ashburn Court residence, according to a Sheriff's Office news replease.
Deputies obtained a warrant to search the property after the man, a door-to-door salesman, reported being injured by a trip wire at the home on March 9 that triggered a device that set off a loud bang. The man told deputies a wire caught around his lower leg.
He said he felt pain in his ear and the incident affected his vision. He left the property with the help of a co-worker and was subsequently hospitalized, according to the Sheriff's Office.
According to Remington's and Hill's arrest affidavits, the trip wire set off a blank round for a 12-guage shotgun.
Deputies said they recovered wire traps that were set at the front and back entrances of the home. One trap was designed to spray a chemical agent, like pepper spray, when triggered, according to the affidavits.
Hill and Remington were booked into the Douglas County Jail for felony second-degree assault, felony menacing and misdemeanor prohibited use of a weapon. Bond for both was set at $25,000.
Hill and Reminton are scheduled to be in court on April 18.
The sheriff’s office said the investigation is ongoing.
