A county jailer has been placed on administrative leave with pay after she was arrested on a charge of domestic assault early Saturday morning.
Corrections Officer Angelita Etrice McGhee, 42, was taken into custody at approximately 5 a.m. at 3825 Hixson Pike.
Sylvia Tatum told police that her ex-girlfriend, Ms. McGhee, came to the apartment and they argued. She said Ms. McGhee then pulled a pistol out of her holster and pointed it at her. Ms. Tatum said she then called 911.
Police said Ms. McGhee left the scene, but later returned. She denied that she had drawn her pistol.
Police said she was taken into custody "due to a history of domestic violence situations between the couple and the accusation of a weapon being directed at the victim."
