An Alexandria Police Department officer was arrested last week and charged with domestic assault and battery, according to an APD news release.

Police said the officer, 30-year-old Richard Haynes, is on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. The alleged incident occurred in the city on Nov. 27, 2021. The release did not provide more information.

It appears Haynes graduated from the police academy in June, according to a tweet from APD on the day of graduation.
