Daniel Patterson Has Finally Been Served, Twice

Posted By on Fri, Mar 2, 2012 at 5:13 PM

Pima County Sheriff's Department Public Information Officer Deputy Dawn Barkman confirmed today that State Rep. Daniel Patterson was served at 3 p.m. outside of his home near Santa Rita Park.

Barkman said Patterson was served by officer with orders from ex-wife Jeneiene Schaffer, as well as ex-girlfriend and ex-campaign manager Georgettte Escobar.

Patterson had been avoiding service of Escobar's restraining order that allows her to enter the home without Patterson on the premesis in order to collect her belongings, as well as her dog, Jake. Escobar had told the Tucson Weekly that most of the furnishings in the house belong to her and that the dog is registered in her name.

Sources close to friends of the family confirmed that Schaffer served Patterson with a protection order for "reckless endangerment and fear of abduction," as an effort to protect Schaffer and the daughter she shares with Patterson.

When asked why the Sheriff's Department served Patterson, and not, for example, the Tucson Police Department, Barkman said that any law enforcement agency could serve Patterson. "We just happened to find him and serve him."

Rumors surfaced earlier today that Patterson could face a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence related to an event that happened on Friday, Feb. 24. Tucson City Prosecutor Baird Greene told the Weekly that charges have not been filed. He said the city is still waiting for TPD to complete its investigation.
