Scappoose man arrested for pulling gun on woman during date
A 48-year-old man from Scappoose was arrested Wednesday, Jan. 17, after a woman told police the man she met through an online dating service pulled a gun on her after a date.
According to the Columbia County Sheriff's Office, Trinna Overlund of Clatskanie, met with Troy James Queen, 48, of Scappoose, in Garibaldi, a small town near the Oregon coast in Tillamook County on Jan. 7. The two met online roughly a month prior and had met in person several times.
Overlund said on the way home from their trip to Garibaldi, Queen pulled a gun on her, firing a shot into the air and then threatening her with the gun before hitting her in the face.
CCSO deputies responded to Overlund's home on Jan. 8 to investigate and "were able to obtain evidence that supported Overlund's claims," a CCSO news release states.
Investigators found Queen in Scappoose and seized his car while arresting him on charges of kidnapping, coercion, menacing, unlawful use of a weapon, interfering with making a report and possession of methamphetamine. His bail is set at $206,250.
A search warrant was served on Queen's vehicle and investigators found a cell phone, firearm and methamphetamine in the car, the Sheriff's Office reports.
