Denton Police Officer Todd Kidwell (pictured above) has been arrested after allegedly punching his boyfriend in the face, The Denton Record-Chronicle reports here. The 39-year-old Kidwell, a 19-year veteran of the Denton Police Department, is charged with class-A misdemeanor assault following the incident on Saturday near Cross Roads. That’s Cross Roads in Denton County, not the Cedar Springs Crossroads.
“The incident is being investigated,” Denton Police Capt. Lenn Carter told The Record-Chronicle. “What the department is concerned about is if any departmental policies or state law was broken. As far as his personal life is concerned, that is a private matter unless the behavior crosses those two policy or law lines.â€
Wait a second, doesn’t that go without saying?
