Sheriff's Deputy Charged With Assault
It has not been a good summer for law enforcement officers in Indianapolis. Marion County Deputy Sheriff Xavier Jenkins has been arrested for assault after punching a friend in the jaw during a card game according to Fox 59 News. Jenkins was reportedly drinking when the argument with his friend occurred. "The victim's jaw was fractured in three places and is now wired shut," the report says. Earlier this week, an IMPD officer was charged with driving under the influence and reckless homicide after his police cruiser crashed into two motorcyclists a week ago and killed one person and seriously injured two others. Another IMPD officer was charged last week after he discharged his handgun in his police cruiser during an argument with his girlfriend.
