Wirt County Assessor Debbie Hennen, 52, was arrested yesterday by the WV State Police related to the intimidation of a witness during a criminal investigation.

That investigation began in August.

Hennen has reportedly been under investigation over yet to be defined issues in her office.

According to the criminal complaint the charges are connected to an incident where Hennen apparently "bullied" an employee, Rosemary Donaldson.

Hennen, according to the complaint, made threating statements to individuals, upset because she believed they initiated the investigation being conducted on her.
