Man who pointed loaded handgun at deputies sentenced

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — A Vancouver man who pointed a loaded handgun at Clark County sheriff’s deputies as they responded to a domestic disturbance in 2019 has been sentenced to nearly five years in prison. Clark County Superior Court Judge John Fairgrieve acknowledged that DeAngelo Clayton was experiencing a mental health crisis at the time and had made comments about wanting to die. But despite the mental health factor, the judge said he could not find a reason to sentence him below the standard range. Clayton apologized to the deputies, stating that his refusal to take his medication put them and him in danger.
