LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An LMPD officer has been arrested on a charge of assault.
Travis Hayden was booked into Metro Corrections on Saturday afternoon, according to the jail's website.

According to police, the victim also suffered an injury to her right shin, which had a small laceration.
Hayden is charged with fourth-degree assault/domestic violence.
