A Springfield police officer is on paid administrative leave after being arrested for domestic battery Thursday morning. Officer Kristoffer D. Rhodes, 30, of Laxford Drive was arrested by Sangamon County sheriff's deputies... Springfield police went to the residence to investigate a report of a domestic disturbance, but after realizing it involved a city officer, they summoned deputies, who ultimately took Rhodes into custody. Rhodes posted $3,000 bond... Springfield police said no one was seriously injured in the altercation. Rhodes will be on leave until the criminal investigation and a probe by the police department's internal affairs section are completed...
