Humboldt Police Chief Brian Dillow was arrested by Allen County sheriff’s deputies Wednesday, after the deputies were called to a suspected domestic dispute in Humboldt. Sheriff Bryan Murphy told The Iola Register that an investigation conducted at the scene led deputies to determine there was probable cause a crime had occurred. Murphy said that because Kansas law mandates an arrest in such instances, Dillow was arrested for suspicion of domestic battery and criminal damage to property.
