5:02 AFTERNOON UPDATE: Graves reinstated in agreement with city

GLASGOW — Glasgow Police Department Lt. Col. David Graves has reached an agreement with the city of Glasgow that all administrative charges filed against him will be dismissed, according to a release Friday afternoon from Graves' attorney, Alan Simpson.

Graves was first placed on paid leave and then unpaid leave nearly a year ago after being arrested on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge. A Barren County jury found him not guilty of the crime in October.

Graves is reinstated to his rank, Simpson said. He will receive full back pay and benefits, according to the release. Graves has almost 20 years' service in at the GPD, and he will be retiring no later than April 1.

Simpson said Graves will not have to report for duty but will receive pay through his retirement date.

Mayor Rhonda Riherd Trautman also said a statement Friday that an agreement had been reached.

"The agreement specifies that Graves will receive pay for the period of time he was suspended but will remain on inactive status pending retirement," Trautman said in the statement
