2 Rocky Boy police officers suspended after assault charges
ROCKY BOY, Mont. (AP) — Two Chippewa Cree law enforcement officers have been suspended after being charged with assault.
Prosecutors say officers Cody Lamere and Kyle LaFramboise were not on duty when they allegedly broke into a house at 4 a.m. on April 22 and Lamere assaulted a sleeping man who was in bed with the mother of LaFramboise’s child.
Prosecutors say LaFramboise slapped and punched the woman later that day.
KOJM-AM reports Lamere is charged with breaking and entering along with assault and battery while LaFramboise is charged with domestic violence and assault and battery.
Both men have pleaded not guilty to the charges and are free after posting bail.
The Rocky Boy Police Department says the two officers have been suspended.
