LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – A Louisville Metro Police officer has been fired after an internal investigation found he repeatedly had improper contact with his wife, including being arrested twice within weeks.

Officer Dezmon Moore was arrested Sept. 5 on a domestic violence assault charge and again last October for having improper contact with his wife, violating the conditions of his release in the assault case.

While the domestic violence charge was eventually dismissed, Moore pleaded guilty to violating the conditions of his release and was sentenced to 180 days in jail, which was conditionally discharged for two years.

In his May 24 termination letter, Chief Steve Conrad said Moore’s actions “have brought discredit upon yourself and the Department.”

Moore is appealing his termination.
