Cop Arrested TWICE for Attacking Women Was Incredibly Rehired — Was Just Arrested a 3rd Time

Philadelphia, PA — Philadelphia Police Officer Deric Lewis was recently arrested for the third time, after being arrested on two other occasions and losing his job as a result. In his two previous arrests, Lewis was charged with assault and reckless endangerment, and was reported as being violent in both situations.

As a result of the first two arrests, he lost his job. However, shortly after, he was rehired, only to be arrested again.

In his most recent arrest, he was booked for domestic violence after his wife called the police on him.

While on the phone with the 911 operator, his wife claimed that he was trying to kill her.

“‘Please hurry. He has a gun and he’s going to kill me,’” she told the operator.

Police say that when they arrived on the scene both Lewis and his wife turned on the police. Lewis refused to identify himself and became belligerent with the officers and reportedly attacked one of them.

Lewis was arrested and charged with assault and two counts of harassment, which still seems light in comparison to what an average person would be charged with if they behaved in a similar manner.

When asked to comment on the case, Lewis’ wife told reporters that “I’m sure he doesn’t give a s**t about what you write. He’s on his way back to work right now.”

In his previous cases, Lewis was able to avoid prosecution because the witness never showed up for court.

Police spokesman Lt. John Stanford said that Lewis would not be getting off easy this time because the witnesses are police officers and will be required to be in court.

“This time, if the assault is against police, I’m pretty sure those officers will be responding to the hearing,” he said.
