The incident began when the wife filed a report stating that Officer Redd assaulted her.

The assault took place after Officer Redd was missing from home for a long time, according to reports.

He is reported to have told his wife that he was visiting his brother, but after not showing up for so long, she decided to check up on his location.

It turns out that he was not visiting his brother, but was eating pizza and talking to a mistress with whom he was cheating on his wife, according to the wife’s complaint.

Devastated by what she believed was cheating, she threw Officer Redd’s pizza on the ground.

Moments later Officer Redd is reported to have grabbed her from behind, and used a closed fist to put pressure on her face while keeping her in a headlock.

    this punk’s biceps are bigger than his i.q. if this was you or me, we’d be well on our way to court appointed counseling, and jail time for domestic violence. but once again there’s different rules, and laws for cops

    So if any citizen would have done this he’d be in jail drying out there. Shouldn’t spousal abuse be grounds for the termination of his job.

      Not when it’s still just a “Good old boys network”. Women officers notwithstanding.

    So he’s an alchoholic. That means he has been driving around impaired. He should be arrested and have his whole live ruined … just like they do to us!

    And hopefully the woman he was with will look at his actions and RUN as far away from him as possible..and maybe since they have shown his picture..ALL other women will take heed..and make sure he’s taken ‘his counseling and help to manage his anger seriously’ before they get into a relationship with him in the future.

    • Chuck Fasst

      you see, here’s the thing about psychopaths. They are very difficult to treat because it is pretty much impossible for them to change their stripes. It has to do with the superiority complex inside of their twisted minds.

    cops should all be tested for steroids………….fkn losers are the worst drug abusers of all

    • Cindy Bishop

      Drug test all cops….makes sense!

  • Cindy Bishop

    This is all done so the officer doesn’t get a bad record…if he goes to alcohol,class they’ll dismiss his crime….This si something the Judges, district attorneys do as a favor to each other and is exactly why the police should NEVER EVER be allowed to police their own crimes…..He’ll most likely shoot her and say she committed suicide and his fellow cop brothers will investigate and yes sir…She killed herself…
