KODIAK — A slew of criminal charges, including six for felony assault, against a Kodiak City Council Member were dropped May 20. 

In March, Randall Bishop, who has previously served as deputy city mayor, faced two counts of felony second-degree assault with a deadly instrument, four counts of felony third-degree assault, four counts of misdemeanor fourth-degree assault by causing reckless injury, and three counts of misdemeanor fourth-degree assault with intent to cause fear of injury –– all of which were dismissed by prosecutors. 

Bishop was formerly accused of assaulting a person with whom he was in a relationship. The alleged incidents occurred on a number of different occasions and one charge involved attempted strangulation.

The incidents that led to the charges, however, did result in a protective order being filed against Bishop, which came into effect this month. 

According to court documents, a magistrate judge presiding over the civil case found that a former partner of Bishops was a “victim of domestic violence” and granted a year-long protective order.
