Manhunt on for former Pueblo deputy accused of domestic assault
PUEBLO, Colo. — A manhunt is on for a former Pueblo County sheriff’s deputy accused of hold his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint after he missed a court date Monday.
According to the Pueblo Chieftain, the law enforcement agency that hired the 42-year-old Randal Scott Alire in January of 2011 believes the former deputy is likely on foot in an open space area near the line dividing El Paso and Elbert counties.
The police manhunt continued late into the night Monday after Alire missed a Pueblo court appearance earlier in the day, which meant he had violated his bond agreement.
Alire, who has been placed on administrative leave by the sheriff’s department, was arrested on Oct. 1 for menacing with a deadly weapon and domestic violence after allegedly holding his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint.
