Livingston County prosecutors have decided not to issue charges against a Lansing police officer arrested in connection with a September domestic assault. Authorities said they felt they couldn't prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt because of factors including inconsistent statements by the complainant, Prosecutor David Morse said.

The officer, who was not identified because he was never officially charged, returned to work in mid-October, Lansing Lt. Bruce Ferguson said.

A Lansing police officer is on paid administrative leave after being arrested in connection with a domestic assault Friday, police Chief Mark Alley said Tuesday.

Mason police are investigating because the officer was arrested there, and the Livingston County Prosecutor's Office is handling the case. Ingham County Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III said his office is not handling the case because it would be a conflict of interest; the officer is serving as a key witness in another investigation.

Neither Dunnings nor Alley would identify the officer or provide details on the case. Alley said the officer will be on leave until the case is resolved or until the department conducts a thorough internal investigation.
