ROUND MOUNTAIN, NV (FOX5) -

Nye County Sheriff’s deputies late last month arrested one of their own in connection to a domestic battery investigation.

About 9:42 p.m. on Sept, 29, deputies responded to a call about domestic battery at a home in Round Mountain. It was reported that 51-year-old Robert Cathcart, who is employed as a Nye County deputy, had been drinking and attacked and choked his girlfriend.

When deputies arrived at the home, Cathcart barricaded himself inside with weapons. He eventually surrendered without incident.

Cathcart was booked into the Nye County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center. His bail was set at $15,500. He has since bailed out.

Cathcart, who is charged with domestic battery/strangulation and obstructing a public officer, has been employed by the department for nine years.

He is currently on administrative leave pending the outcome of an internal affairs investigation.
