A Philadelphia Police officer was arrested after he allegedly assaulted a woman.
Police say 35-year-old Deric Lewis was involved in a “domestic altercation” with a woman while he was off-duty back on Dec. 28 in Upper Darby. When Upper Darby Police officers arrived at the scene, Lewis didn’t comply with requests to obtain his identification and acted in a “disorderly manner,” according to investigators.
Lewis was arrested and charged with simple assault and harassment.
Lewis is a 9-year veteran of the Philadelphia Police Department assigned to the 19th District. Commissioner Charles Ramsey suspended him for 30 days with the intent to dismiss.
