CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) - A March trial has been scheduled for a Clear Lake police officer accused of misdemeanor domestic assault.

Online court records show 36-year-old Ryan Eskildsen has pleaded not guilty and notified the court that he’ll claim self-defense. His trial is set to begin March 28.

Authorities have not released any details about the incident, which occurred Nov. 29 in Clear Lake. The Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case.

Eskildsen, who was placed on administrative leave, joined the Clear Lake force in 2002.
