Former Marshals Museum CEO Pleads Guilty to Assault
Patrick Weeks

Patrick Weeks, the former CEO of the U.S. Marshals Museum in Fort Smith, has pleaded guilty to charges that he pointed at gun at two people last year.

Sebastian County court records show that Weeks pleaded guilty on Sept. 28 to two counts of aggravated assault, a Class D felony. He was given two suspended sentences of six years. 

Weeks was arrested in Fort Smith in December after a confrontation with two construction workers at his home. The workers told police that Weeks refused to let them onto his property to repair a street light. Weeks then allegedly pointed a pistol at the two, followed them after they drove away, and pointed the gun at them a second time.

He resigned from the Marshals Museum in March after six years leading the organization.

The museum in August hired Ben Johnson as CEO. Johnson was previously vice president of museum experiences at the Putnam Museum & Science Center in Davenport, Iowa.
