WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (The Palm Beach (Fla.) Post) — Officials say a Palm Beach County sheriff's deputy is on paid leave following a domestic dispute that left a woman with a bloody nose.
The incident took place Monday and Deputy Alex Alfonso was arrested on a domestic battery charge, sheriff's officials said in a report.
He was released from jail Tuesday under court-ordered supervision. The incident report said the woman got into an argument with Alfonso, who struck her.
Investigators interviewed the woman and a witness at a field office in suburban Boca Raton.
It's not clear whether Alfonso has an attorney.
