MADOC, Ont. -- A provincial police officer who pleaded guilty to domestic assault has been charged with discreditable conduct under the Police Services Act.

The officer, who was convicted of assault and mischief in Belleville Provincial Court last November, was given a suspended sentence in May.

The charges related to an incident in which the man broke a woman's jaw and caused other injuries by throwing heavy objects at her in May 2012.

The officer has been suspended with pay since the charges were laid and police have not released his name or the location of the incident.

However, the officer is with the Central Hastings OPP detachment in Madoc, north of Belleville.

Sgt. Kristine Rae says the discreditable conduct charge was laid by the force's Professional Standards Branch and the officer is scheduled for a first appearance Aug. 13.
