Roanoke County Firefighter Arrested on Multiple Charges

A 27-year-old, two-year veteran of the Roanoke County Fire and Rescue Department is under arrest for various charges this morning stemming from a domestic situation in which gunshots were fired.


County police say 27-year-old Robert Kelly Stoots faces six charges:

      • Abduction
      • Assault & Battery
      • Use of a firearm in the commission of a felony
      • Reckless handling of a firearm
      • Brandishing a firearm
      • Preventing someone from making a 911 call

Investigators say the case began early on Sunday, February 10th, when Salem Police officers contacted them about arresting Stoots on a DUI charge.  Officers said Stoots’ girlfriend was in his truck, and Salem investigators determined she had been held against her will, and that Stoots pointed a gun at her.
