- SAPD said one of its officers has been charged with domestic assault.
The arrested officer, Philip Ortiz Jr., has since been suspended without pay, according to the TV station's reporting.
SAPD officials told KSAT that Ortiz physically assaulted his significant other during an argument. The officer's firearm was also discharged during the incident but didn't result in injury, according to the report, which didn't specify who fired the weapon.
The five-year SAPD veteran now faces a charge of assault bodily injury — family violence, according to the report.
