DPD Officer Suspended For Alleged Family Violence
The Dallas Police Department sends word that it has suspended officer Jakarsha Carter following a family violence call early this morning.
According to the police report, Carter, 29, and a 25-year-old woman were arguing in a car in the 9800 block of Sophora Circle just after midnight. When the woman took her seat belt off, Carter allegedly grabbed her by the left arm and shoved her head into the passenger window. The woman left the car and fled down the street.
Carter, who joined DPD in January 2010, was charged with misdemeanor assault and placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of her trial and an administrative investigation.
The Dallas County Jail had no mug shot for Carter. Spokeswoman Carmen Castro said that happens sometimes with misdemeanors. Carter posted a $1,500 bond this afternoon.
