Officer will lose job if convicted of domestic violence
KTBS, LA - Nov 20, 2007
The Shreveport police officer arrested Monday after a fight with his girlfriend could lose his job if convicted of domestic battery because he would be prohibited from carrying a gun. Michael Welch, 31, hit his girlfriend early Monday after she had taken his pickup for two days, police said. Welch is a widower. His wife died this past January in what was determined to be a suicide using Welch's department-issue pistol. Cynthia Welch, 30, was found in the bathtub of the couple's mobile home with a gunshot wound to the head, police said. Welch was placed on leave while detectives and the coroner investigated, then returned to duty, Police Department spokeswoman Kacee Hargrave said. Welch, a patrolman, is currently on paid administrative leave while the Police Department's Internal Affairs Division investigates the incident involving his girlfriend. He posted bond on the domestic violence charge and was released from jail, officials said. Monday's fight revolved around Welch's girlfriend, Crystal Nicholas, not returning his truck, police said. He had reported it stolen after she didn't call him. Nicholas, 27, brought it back to the mobile home they shared and the fight ensued, police said. Welch has not been arraigned on the charge. Nicholas was arrested for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
