Omak Man Arrested After Injuring Colville Tribal Officer


November 5, 2018

Joseph H. Harrington, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington, announced that Brandon Shea Marchand, age 44, of Omak, Washington, and an enrolled member of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, was sentenced today after having pleaded guilty on September 25, 2018, to Assault on a Federal Officer Resulting in Bodily Injury. United States District Judge Rosanna Malouf Peterson sentenced Marchand to a 115-month term of imprisonment, to be followed by a 3-year term of court supervision after he is released from federal prison. The sentence was at the high end of the advisory range recommended by the United States Sentencing Guidelines.

According to information disclosed during court proceedings, a Colville Tribal Officer, who is an enrolled member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe in South Dakota, attempted to serve an arrest warrant on Marchand in February 2018, on the Colville Reservation. Marchand drove away on a four-wheeler, causing the officer to pursue him over wintry terrain while Marchand yelled he was not going to jail, and this would be an officer-assisted suicide call.
