Investigators said that made the SUV behind him come to a sudden stop too. The driver of the truck got out and walked toward the people in the SUV, according to deputies.

Prosecutors declined to charge Deputy Arthur Wallin and said he was justified in the October 2018 shooting death of 24-year-old Nickolas Michael Peters. Wallin was terminated even after prosecutors said he was cleared of criminal wrongdoing.

Fortney, a political newcomer who took office Dec. 30 after defeating incumbent Ty Trenary, said he told the former deputy he would review the case, but made no promises that he would be rehired.

“I felt obligated to do so since the facts that I knew at the time of the incident did not seem to warrant termination,” Fortney said. “After carefully reviewing the information, I found the termination of Deputy Wallin was not justified and that his actions were reasonable under the circumstances the suspect chose to put him in that night.”

When prosecutors declined charges, they said at the time that Peters had engaged in reckless behavior and failed to respond to commands to show his hands.

Authorities say Wallin fired twice through the windshield at Peters after his car crashed. Peters’ parents filed a federal lawsuit against Wallin and the sheriff’s office. The county settled the lawsuit for $1 million.

“The bottom line is, Deputy Wallin never should have been terminated in the first place,” Fortney said.  “Deputy sheriffs are expected to make split second decisions in situations which are tense, uncertain, and rapidly evolving.  The incident the former administration terminated him for would fall under this category.  Deputy Wallin believed his partner’s life was in danger when he chose to use force. I believe Deputy Wallin’s actions were reasonable …In my judgment, Deputy Wallin put his life on the line to protect both his partner and his community.”
