Deputies Respond To A Protective Order Violation, With The Subject Possibly Armed


Duchesne Co.—On March 21st, 2024, Duchesne County Deputies responded to what was believed to be a protective order violation with an armed subject in the area of 7000 South 6000 West in Duchesne County.

Upon arriving, deputies witnessed a male fleeing the home and entering a vehicle in an attempt to get away from law enforcement. At the same time, a female stood outside, pointing toward the male.

Deputies turned on their emergency lights as the suspect began to flee. The male started driving through the yard, dodging trees to lose the deputies before turning into a flat, open area and coming to a stop.

Deputy Green and Deputy Mathews exited their vehicles with their weapons drawn and began giving verbal commands for the suspect to get out of the vehicle and to get on the ground.

The deputies gained control of the situation, and the suspect was detained by Deputy Nichols, who also identified the suspect as 34-year-old Chet Kim Harding. Chet was searched for weapons and found to be unarmed. Chet was saying something and hit his own head on the ground.

Deputy Nichols interviewed the woman on scene, who expressed that Chet arrived at her home, where he was not welcome, and began banging on the door, demanding to be let in. The female stated that when she repeatedly declined, he refused to leave the property.

It was later found Chet had not yet been served the protective order with the female at the time of the incident. Therefore, no violation had occurred.

Chet Harding was taken to the Duchesne County Jail and booked on the charges of evading and disorderly conduct.
