Sean P. Murphy is back behind bars after Lake Ozark police officers arrested the 35-year-old on an outstanding warrant related to a May 2010 domestic assault charge, according to information provided by the Lake Ozark Police Department.
Murphy, a resident of Lake Ozark, was taken into custody without incident last week, Lt. Bill Edburg said.
Officers applied for the domestic assault charge in May after Murphy was allegedly involved in a physical altercation. The victim sustained several minor injuries, Edburg said.
It has taken this long for the warrant to be processed, he added.
Murphy was charged with domestic assault in the second degree, a class C felony. His bond was set at $25,000.
The former candidate for alderman is already facing three other felony charges of burglary, theft/stealing and receiving stolen property stemming from allegations that he broke into the old Lake Ozark Police Department building.
Based on information received from a tip, officers executed a search warrant on Murphy’s house, which is located next door to the police department building, in early May. Murphy was taken into custody after officers recovered the missing equipment.
Murphy attempted his first round in the political ring during this past April’s municipal election. He was one of three candidates running against incumbent Alderman Jeff Van Donsel for Ward 3. Murphy lost the election.
Murphy is the manager of a local night club.
