DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A 33-year-old Des Moines police officer has been charged with injuring his former girlfriend.
Polk County Jail records say Cody Grimes remained in custody on Tuesday, facing a charge of domestic assault causing injury. Online court records don’t list the name of his attorney.
Sgt. Jason Halifax says Grimes is on paid leave pending an internal investigation.
The 25-year-old woman told officers that Grimes grabbed her by her jacket and threw her down some stairs at his home early Friday morning. She also says he grabbed her and threw her inside the house and against a door.
Grimes has been on the force for more than six years.
