[Excerpts] A Dallas police officer has been suspended for 10 days in connection with two domestic disturbances involving his wife in 2011. Cortney Thornton received the suspension last month following a disciplinary hearing... Thornton was arrested on a Class C misdemeanor assault charge in January 2011... He denied assaulting her. She later signed an affidavit of non prosecution and would not cooperate with the criminal investigation... A day after the [2nd] incident, Thornton's wife called the deputy chief at southeast patrol and told her that he had locked her out of their house, that she was scared of him and that she had no place to go. Internal investigators ultimately concluded that he also violated the department's administrative leave policy when he went to his wife's workplace.
