Tony] Drzewiecki said. According to LCSO documents, this is the third time Taylor has been investigated by internal affairs. In August 2006, his then-wife said he "struck her on her back and face" during an argument," according to a department report, but she didn't want to pursue criminal charges and the case was closed.
