DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A 33-year-old Des Moines police officer accused of assaulting his former girlfriend has made a plea deal.

The Des Moines Register says (https://dmreg.co/TxcRey ) Cody Grimes pleaded guilty to fourth-degree criminal mischief. Prosecutors dismissed a charge of domestic assault in return for Grimes‘ plea. Online court records say Grimes was fined $1,000 on Wednesday.

Grimes was charged with assaulting his former girlfriend on Dec. 27. The woman told officers that Grimes grabbed her by her jacket and threw her down some stairs at his home. She also says he grabbed her and threw her against a door.

He’s been on paid leave since the allegation was made. A police spokesman, Sgt. Jason Halifax, says Police Chief Judy Bradshaw hasn’t made a decision on Grimes‘ punishment within the department.
