Northern Arizona tribal police chief indicted

HOLBROOK, Ariz. -- A former tribal police chief has been indicted on charges including domestic violence and discharging a firearm for allegedly shooting at his estranged wife's car with a rifle.

The Navajo County Attorney's Office announced Wednesday that a grand jury indicted Samuel Lujan.

The 47-year-old acting police chief for the Tonto Apache Tribe faces five felony counts, ranging from stalking to disorderly conduct.

Authorities say Lujan shot at the unoccupied vehicle at least 18 times on a residential street in Heber on Oct. 19 after receiving divorce papers. Lujan then barricaded himself inside his home, resulting in a standoff with law enforcement that lasted several hours.

He eventually surrendered.

Prosecutors say Lujan is scheduled to appear in Navajo County Superior Court on Oct. 31.
