A part-time patrol officer was arrested just after 12:30 a.m. Wednesday following an apparent domestic dispute. The suspect is identified as Justin Allen Workman, who was recently hired as a part-time patrol officer for the village of Ridgway, IL.  According to Carrier Mills police, Workman was arrested after an incident in which he broke cell phone into four pieces and threatened a family with a firearm.  The family then ran and called police. Workman, 22, was booked into the Saline County Detention Center on a charge of domestic battery. According to authorities, Workman has a previous arrest for domestic battery and a previous order of protection. [LINK]
