Warren -- A Grosse Pointe Woods police officer pleaded guilty and was sentenced today to a misdemeanor charge for resisting arrest following a domestic dispute in May.
James Dadeppo of St. Clair Shores pleaded guilty in 37th District Court to one count of hindering and was sentenced to community service and one year of probation. He was also ordered to pay $600 in fines and costs.
In exchange for the plea, one misdemeanor charge of domestic assault was dismissed, court officials said.
On May 1, Warren police were called to a home in the 28900 block of Lane Court near Common and Hayes roads for a domestic dispute.
At the home, a 53-year-old Warren woman said Dadeppo became verbally abusive to her while they were having a few drinks at a Sterling Heights restaurant.
Police said Dadeppo later showed up at the home, argued with the woman and shoved her. And when police attempted to question Dadeppo, he refused to comply and struggled when officers attempted to handcuff him and take him into custody.
