INDIANAPOLIS - An IMPD officer was arrested Friday night on charges of residential entry and battery, police officials have confirmed.
Indianapolis Police Officer David Reece was taken into custody Friday night after a disturbance on the 8800 block of William Penn Circle, near the intersection of 75th Street and Sargent Road just north of Lawrence.
According to a statement issued Saturday, witness accounts and observations made by IMPD detectives led to the arrest of Reece, 45, on two counts of battery and one count of residential entry.
Police said Reece was taken into custody without incident.
IMPD spokesman Officer Christopher Wilburn said Reece has been suspended without pay pending the results of an internal investigation.
In September, Reece and his partner Officer Jason Scott were lauded after they purchased new bikes for two young children who'd had theirs stolen .
