OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Authorities say an Oklahoma police officer has been arrested on several charges relating to a domestic incident that occurred last weekend.
Officials say that Oklahoma City police officer Luis Maldonado was arrested Thursday on charges that include kidnapping, domestic abuse in the presence of a minor, and threatening to perform an act of violence.
Authorities began investigating the matter on Tuesday after receiving a tip about a disturbance involving Maldonado over the holiday weekend.
He has been placed on administrative leave with pay. The 42-year-old Maldonado has been with the Oklahoma City force for four years.
He was being held Thursday in the Oklahoma County jail. Online jail records don’t indicate whether he has an attorney to speak on his behalf.
