Ar­rest re­port, court docs out­line mul­ti­ple spouse abuse al­le­ga­tions against Seagen founder Clay Sie­gall

New in­for­ma­tion has emerged de­tail­ing the events that led to the April 23 ar­rest of Seagen CEO Clay Sie­gall and a May 2 tem­po­rary re­strain­ing or­der against him, ac­cord­ing to doc­u­ments ob­tained by End­points News.

Around 3 a.m. lo­cal time on April 23, Sie­gall’s wife and a wit­ness called po­lice af­ter he al­leged­ly pushed her to the ground, and he was brought to jail hours lat­er on a charge of fourth de­gree do­mes­tic vi­o­lence gross mis­de­meanor, per po­lice records from that morn­ing.
