Attorney Hiram Lewis arrested on intimidation charge
Former Republican candidate for attorney general and West Virginia Republican Party treasurer Hiram Lewis is in trouble with the law again.
Lewis was arrested for intimidation of a state's witness on Saturday.
He is accused of intimidating Clay County Sheriff Randy Holcomb.
Lewis said he considers Holcomb a friend and that he never tried to intimidate him.
Lewis, an attorney, was recently indicted on charges of malicious wounding, domestic assault and wanton endangerment involving a firearm.
Lewis was arrested in June by the West Virginia State Police after he admitted to shooting Stephen Bogart in the leg. Lewis said the shooting was in self defense and that Bogart tried to break into his house.
He is free on bond this evening.
