Detroit police officer in custody accused of domestic violence

DETROIT (WJBK) -

A Detroit police officer with nearly 25 years on the job is in custody accused of domestic violence.

The alleged altercation happened on Saturday between the 42-year-old officer and his girlfriend. Neighbors tell Isom they heard gunfire that day, which police have not confirmed.

"On the night of the incident there was a physical altercation between him and the young lady, and a report was made and we moved on that and sought a warrant and he arrested him for the ... alleged actions," says Commander Johnny Thomas.

A source tells FOX 2's Andrea Isom the woman escaped the situation by jumping out of a window and running to a nearby restaurant, wearing barely any clothing.

An employee at the restaurant tells Isom the woman was only wearing a shirt and her face was "a little bit beat up." Employees gave her some clothes to cover up and called for help.

Investigators may have been at the home once before, but they were also there again Tuesday searching for any signs of a struggle. They took lots of pictures and seemed to collect more evidence.

Police say the officer turned himself in, and the department has a zero tolerance policy for crime so the situation could cost the officer his job.

The officer is expected to be arraigned on Wednesday.

The data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that Pittsburgh, Louisville, Milwaukee and Detroit round out the list.
