An off-duty female Detroit police officer has been suspended with pay after she was charged with assaulting her ex-boyfriend.
Nicole Rabior was charged with domestic assault after allegedly hitting the man with her hand and then throwing a cell phone battery charger at him, Clinton Township police Capt. Doug Mills said.
Rabior, 22, who lives on Cottrell Street in Clinton Township, was charged in 41B District Court with felonious assault, a 4-year felony. She was released on $25,000 personal bond by Magistrate John Russi.
The man told police the couple got into an argument over their relationship early Wednesday morning when he returned to her home. The man told police the woman also threw a water bottle at him and then struck him in the back of the head with another water bottle.
She also allegedly attacked him with her fists, he said.
"Her boyfriend then shut the bedroom door and she broke in," Mills said. "She then hit him in the back area with the battery charger."
Mills said the man, a Detroit firefighter, came to Clinton Township's police headquarters
to file the report.
Detroit police information officials said the woman has been a police officer for the past three years. She is assigned to patrol duties at Detroit's Ninth (Gratiot at Gunston) Precinct.
An Internal Affairs investigation will be held to review the incident, officials said.
Officials said Rabior has been suspended with pay pending a hearingthis week before the Detroit Police Commission.
"We don't have a choice but to arrest a person when a complaint is filed and there are obvious signs of injury," Mills said.
