Woodbury County supervisor David Tripp faces more charges in connection to an alleged domestic abuse incident that took place at his home last December.
The 44-year-old Tripp has been charged with a class D felony of going armed with intent and an aggravated misdemeanor of first-degree harassment.
Tripp previously pleaded not guilty to an aggravated misdemeanor of domestic abuse assault in the December 14th incident involving his wife at their Sioux City home.
Court documents say he fired a gun into the air. No one was injured.
Assistant Iowa Attorney General Coleman McAllister filed a motion to add the charges.
District Judge Julie Schumacher approved the motion at a pre-trial hearing on Monday afternoon.
Tripp’s trial is scheduled to start in August.
