Rich Fellers, 2012 Jumping World Cup champion and American Olympian, was arrested by Tualatin Oregon Police detectives Monday morning at his home and stables in Oregon City, Oregon.
The arrest, according to law firm Palma & Prince, is the result of a year-long investigation into “allegations of misconduct” that originated with a complaint to the sports governing body and watchdog group, U.S. Center for SafeSport.
Fellers and his wife Shelley were placed on interim suspension by the Center in February 2021, prohibiting them from coaching or working with young equestrians. Shelley Fellers was later issued a four-year suspension by the Center in April for abuse of process, retaliation, and failure to report. That suspension is currently subject to appeal.
