Clearfield County Deputy Zachery Dodson was arrested over the weekend after shooting a patron in the face at the Invictus club on Dubois Street. Dobson is accused of getting into an argument with the club's owner after being cutoff and asked to leave. When the owner asked Dobson to leave again he allegedly pulled his gun and began making terroristic threats when a patron stepped between the two of them. Dobson shot the patron in the face before the owner tackled him, took away his gun, and held him until police arrived. Dobson was booked into the Jefferson County Jail on charges of aggravated assault, making terroristic threats, reckless endangerment, and simple assault.

The victim was taken to a hospital in Pittsburgh where he is in stable condition with a broken jaw. The owner of the bar is being hailed as a hero for basically conducting a citizen's arrest.

Zachery Dodson is also employed as an officer with the Curwensville Borough Police Department. His employers have issued the usual statements they make whenever an officer is arrested claiming that his actions don't reflect on his co-workers. You can learn more about his case in the video below.
