IN Fort Wayne Police Officer, Union Rep, Derrick Westfield ACQUITTED
November 4th, 2005 Fort Wayne Police Officer and board member for the Patrolman’s Benevolent Association Derrick Westfield is acquitted of violating his ex wife's protection order. It was the 2nd one she had taken against him. Applications for both protective orders allege Westfield physically threatened her, stalked her and caused her physical harm. His estranged wife also filed a police report against him in late July alleging domestic battery. No charges were filed in connection with that report. His ex was disappointed by the acquittal. She said afterward that she simply doesn’t want to be harassed anymore and that when she called police that day, she was expecting to be protected as every other citizen would be. He remained on the job pending the outcome of the case and was not restricted in his duties.
