West Valley City's chief prosecuting attorney said he chose not to file domestic violence charges in February against a Salt Lake City police officer because there was not enough evidence to warrant prosecution. According to police records obtained by the Salt Lake Tribune this week through a public records request, the wife of officer Richard Farnsworth admitted to West Valley City officers investigating a domestic dispute at their home that she lied about her husband hitting her during an argument in January. The alleged incident occurred Jan. 5 and was reported to police by a friend of Farnsworth's wife. She told police that Farnsworth's wife had called her and complained that her husband had broken her nose during a fight, the police report states. Farnsworth, who has been with the Salt Lake City Police Department since August 2004, was then issued a class-B misdemeanor citation for domestic violence. The West Valley City police report concludes with Farnsworth's wife admitting twice to making "everything up" to get her husband in trouble. Farnsworth was placed on paid leave after the incident, but was reinstated to the force in March.
