Shingletown Man Accused of Firing Shot During Domestic Dispute

A Shingletown man was arrested Thursday evening after allegedly firing his gun during a domestic violence incident. Deputies were called to the home of 60-year-old Kenneth Duane Berg on Brett Road by a friend of his wife. She had gone to the home to pick up the woman, who said she had been assaulted by Berg. He didn’t let them go quietly, arguing with them as they left and reportedly firing a gunshot. Deputies say they saw the victim’s injuries and went to talk to Berg, who was outside when they arrived. He reportedly challenged the deputies to fight him and was taken into custody with the help of Kilo the K9. The house was searched and a number of guns were seized, including an assault rifle with a high capacity magazine. Berg was admitted to a hospital for his dog bites. He’ll face several felony charges.
