KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - An attorney has been rehired by the Klamath County District Attorney's Office a few years after he resigned following a gun incident.

District Attorney Eve Costello told the Herald and News that Cole Chase was the most qualified applicant her office received for a position that opened up.

Chase resigned Jan. 1, 2015, while facing criminal charges that he threatened two men with a gun during an argument outside a martini bar.

He later pleaded no contest to unlawful use of a weapon and menacing. He was sentenced to probation, and required to undergo treatment for anger management and alcohol abuse.

The Oregon State Bar suspended Chase's law license for six months and placed him on probation for 18 months.
