Officer Alex Milhazes has been on unpaid administrative leave since February 5th, police say, due to an unrelated Internal Affairs investigation. On Sunday, police say a woman reported that Milhazes, who identified himself as a security officer for an apartment complex on Lucy Jane Lane, pushed her and slammed a gate on her ankle during an altercation at the complex’s pool.
Police say the victim appeared before a magistrate judge and a criminal summons was issued on Milhazes.
CMPD is now conducting a separate internal investigation, officials say, to determine whether Milhazes violated any department policies or procedures. This is standard procedure for any officer accused of a crime.
