Masontown fire chief charged with domestic violence

August 23 – The chief of the Masontown Volunteer Fire Department faces a domestic violence charge in Preston County after West Virginia State Troopers responded to an attack reported Monday at his Long Hollow Road residence.

At the scene, police spoke to the female victim who said Daniel Allen Luzier, 68, of Masontown, had laid hands on her earlier that day and that she was “in fear for her safety,” the indictment said.

The victim claimed that Luzier “grabbed her shoulders, scratched her left collarbone and hit her on the left cheek.”

Trooper AG Preston reported seeing pictures of the scratch on her left collarbone and officers saw red marks on the left side of her cheek and lower left side of her back.

Luzier was taken into custody and charged with domestic battery. He was released from Tygart Valley Regional Jail after posting $2,500 bail.

If convicted of the crime, Luzier faces up to 12 months in prison, a possible $500 fine, or a combination of both.
