A Metro police officer was arrested Tuesday night after he allegedly choked his teenage son and pushed his wife down the steps.
Police in Nolensville, Williamson County, responded to Dale Becraft’s home at 8:45 p.m. where officers spoke with his son and wife.
The teen said his dad choked him during an argument. Becraft’s wife alleged that he pushed her down steps. She further alleged that he took the family’s cell phones when she tried to call 911.
Becraft was already gone when officers arrived. He reported to the Nolensville Police Department later in the night and was subsequently booked into the Williamson County jail on charges aggravated assault, domestic assault and prevention of a 911 call.
His bond was set at $8,000 bond.
The investigation into his alleged acts is ongoing.
