Misdemeanor charges filed against a Grand County sheriff’s deputy finally offer some information on his alleged victims, after two weeks of silence that followed his arrest on suspicion of attempted murder.

Timothy John "T.J." Brewer, 33, was charged on Tuesday in 7th District Court with assault and assault against a peace officer or military service member in uniform. Both charges carry a sentence, upon conviction, of up to one year in jail.

Moab police arrested Brewer and booked him into San Juan County Jail on July 12. Last week, the 7th District Court out of San Juan County ordered Brewer’s release from the facility without having to post bond.

Since his arrest, the investigation has been handed over to the Utah County Sheriff’s Office. But it was the Utah attorney general’s office that filed charges against him.

Details of the allegations against Brewer are unknown, as neither Moab police nor Utah County officials have commented on the case. But according to the charges filed Tuesday, Brewer’s alleged victim in the first charge is one "W. Brewer" and the victim of his second charge is "Officer S. Wiseman."

The defendant’s father, Wesley "Corky" Brewer, is the Moab fire chief. The court order releasing Brewer from jail states that among the conditions of release from jail, he is not allowed to have any contact with his father or his wife.

The Moab Fire Department declined to comment on Corky Brewer’s relationship to the case.

Also last week, Brewer’s wife filed a request with the 7th District Court in Grand County for a protective order against him. The next day, the woman asked for the request to be dismissed, according to the court docket.

The reasons for the wife’s request for a protective order and the subsequent withdrawal are unavailable because, under Utah law, documents filed in conjunction with protective orders are not public.

Timothy Brewer is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 6 before 7th District Judge Lyle Anderson.
