Dallas police officer gets probation in assault on girlfriend

A Dallas police officer has received probation for assaulting his girlfriend, a fellow officer, earlier this year. Officer Michael Yarbrough, 38, was ordered last week to serve three months of unsupervised deferred adjudication probation on the misdemeanor charge and to attend anger management class. The offense won't count on his criminal history if he successfully completes probation. Officer Yarbrough, an 11-year veteran, originally faced a Class A misdemeanor family violence assault charge, but that charge was reduced to a Class C misdemeanor with no finding of family violence. He remains on administrative leave, awaiting disciplinary action by the Police Department. His girlfriend, Officer Erin Kaschalk, told police in February that Officer Yarbrough returned to their North Dallas apartment early one morning and accused her of sleeping with another man. She told police that he punched her in the mouth, splitting her lip. She also told officers that Officer Yarbrough took her phone and would not allow her to call 911, a police report said. She eventually was able to get the phone away from him and called 911. "The suspect told the complainant before he left that he was not going to go to jail for this or lose his job so he was going to leave the state," the arrest warrant stated. He was not at the apartment when police arrived. [Article here]
