[Excerpts] ...Bowman was arrested Oct. 29 at his home after his wife called police, saying he was threatening to kill himself, Sgt. Steve Judd said. While at the residence in the 45000 block of West Cowpath Drive, police were told of the suspected abuse. Police later returned with a search warrant and took Bowman's cellphone, a computer and other items. In his resignation letter, Bowman, who joined the Mesa department July 25, 2005, offers no reasoning for his decision to quit. But internal police documents show he was facing discipline for a number of issues from failing to turn in required logs and paperwork to failing to show up for duty in March. In November 2006, he received a verbal reprimand for causing a vehicle accident while on duty. The incident caused $1,100 in damage to his police car. At the time of his resignation, Bowman faced three written and two verbal reprimands, and three 10-hour suspensions, according to police records. [Full article here]

  1. I never would have thought that Justin would do something like this. i am just now finding out because I have movef out of state. I went to highschool with Justin and we dated for awhile. Justin was a great father and he was great to my son as well. I guess hind site is 20 20 because if I would have known that this was in his genetics, I never would have allowed him to watch my son nor would I have had a relationship with him. I am so disgusted!!!!!
