St. Louis police officer faces multiple assault charges after striking female officer while on duty,

ST. LOUIS — A male St. Louis Metropolitan Police officer is accused of assaulting a female officer multiple times while on duty, according to court documents.

Rashard C. Lovelace, 31, faces four counts of fourth-degree domestic assault for assaulting an officer with whom he was in a relationship, according to court documents. The alleged assaults happened in various city locations in July and August 2020. Witnesses in the charging documents include at least four St. Louis police officers.

Lovelace punched the officer in the chest two times, and two other times he put his hand around her neck in an “aggressive manner,” according to court documents.

A judge initially revoked Lovelace’s bond, but he was released this week on his own recognizance. Part of the condition of his bond is to stay away from the victim. His next court date is set for May 18, and his attorney did not immediately return a request for comment on Friday.

It looks like the SLPD needs to clean up shop. The article mentions that two other officers were charged with rape earlier this year.

3. Yes, drug screening (esp. for steroids) should be a routine part of these investigations.

4. I've been saying this for years

Every excessive force complaint should trigger an immediate steroid test.

6. Nope.

You never even hear it mentioned. I think the unions don't want anyone looking.

2. Good thing...

That our new AG has decided to investigate the dept. Maybe this case helped him make that decision.

7. Domestic violence is a disqualification for gun ownership.

Should also be for being a cop.
