ISHPEMING -- A former Ishpeming police officer, charged with one count of domestic violence, will be in court Tuesday afternoon.

His name is not being released until after his arraignment.

The officer, who resigned from the Ishpeming Police Department Sunday, is charged with a misdemeanor.

Michigan State Police and Marquette County Prosecutor's Office investigated the allegations that were recently brought to their attention by the victim.

According to officials, the domestic violence incident happened in Marquette County at the officer's home between 2005 and 2006, with a family member.

Officials say the officer was on the force when the incident happened, but was not related to his work as an officer.

Authorities say the victim was not injured. [Hmm. I bet this depends on the definition of "injured."]

The officer is to appear in Ishpeming District Court, Tuesday afternoon.

UPDATE:
Out of over a hundred combined article comments no one accused the commenter who claimed to be his daughter and his victim of lying. She wrote that there was no hitting, and said the crime had nothing to do with domestic violence but that the dv charge was a (snazzy, tricky) part of a plea agreement to hide a different family crime that had occurred.

    Bless you Katts. Telling people someone they love did something horrible is hard. So hard. It is so easy to feel like you should keep it a secret. To protect them. To keep the pain from rippling across through everyone. But it isn't your cross to bear. You've felt enough pain and deserve to be free from guilt, shame, or fear. Victims rarely, rarely get justice in sex crimes and I feel so sad for you that they pled him down to dv. He should be held accountable. People should know he is not safe to have around their girls. I'm disgusted. Completely disgusted.
