A Glasgow police officer is on paid administrative leave after he being arrested Monday on a domestic violence charge.
Lt. Col. David E. Graves, 46, of Glasgow, was arrested by the Kentucky State Police and charged with fourth-degree assault (domestic violence with minor injury). Graves is an assistant chief of police for the Glasgow Police Department.
KSP responded to a 911 call.
“We originally got the call, I want to say, around 10:27 last night,” said Trooper Jonathan Biven, public information officer for the state police post in Bowling Green. “We were requested due to the nature of the complaint …, at which point we did arrest Mr. Graves and he was charged with assault, fourth-degree, domestic violence. He was arrested without incident.”
Biven confirmed it was the alleged victim of the assault who made the 911 call.
He could not release her name nor her relationship to Graves.
The alleged victim refused medical treatment, Biven said.
KSP had not responded to the same residence in the past in response to domestic violence issues, he said.
Graves was lodged in the Barren County Detention Center on Tuesday at 1:16 a.m. He was released at 9:42 a.m., according to the jail website.
