LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An officer with a Kentucky police department has been arrested in Indiana on a domestic battery charge.

News outlets report Louisville Metro Police Officer Aaron Jaggers was arrested early Sunday morning after three officers from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of a domestic disturbance at a home in Memphis, Indiana.

The probable cause affidavit says Jaggers‘ fiancée confronted him about texting a female coworker, and he pushed her into a column when she tried to reach for his phone. Officers say both the woman and Jaggers said the victim also hit Jaggers.

LMPD spokesman Dwight Mitchell says Jaggers has been placed on administrative leave.

Jaggers‘ attorney Larry Wilder says his client was acting in self-defense and is receiving undue scrutiny because of his job.
