A Metcalfe County judge issued a domestic violence order of protection against Glasgow Police Department Sgt. Jarrod Steele, department spokeswoman Julie Anne Williams said.
The order is in place for two years and prohibits Steele from possession of any guns while not on police duty, Williams said.
Glasgow Police Chief Guy Turcotte put Steele on paid administrative leave until further notice.
This is the second Glasgow officer in two weeks to face domestic violence accusations.
Officer Joseph Ford’s estranged wife, Katja Ford, 38, filed June 10 for an emergency protective order, Barren Circuit Court records show. The following day, she filed for divorce.
The file containing the protection order is not open for public inspection. Kentucky State Police served a domestic violence summons on Ford earlier.
