On Monday, Lubbock County Sheriff’s Deputy, Brandon Coulter, was arrested and charged with domestic violence. At this time, the deputy has been placed on administrative leave pending further investigation.
"We take these allegations very seriously. An internal administrative investigation in coordination with the Lubbock Police Department is underway,," the LCSO said in a statement.
Lubbock police officers were called to the 5200 block of Marshall Street around 2:45 a.m. in reference to a domestic disturbance. The report said Coulter assaulted his girlfriend at their home.
Coulter bonded out of the Lubbock County Detention Center Monday afternoon.
