A Chattanooga Police officer has been charged with domestic assault in an incident in which her nephew said she hit him over an unpaid water bill.
On Tuesday, Officer Cameka Bruce was arrested at police headquarters by another city officer.
Officer Bruce, 35, has been placed on administrative paid leave pending the outcome of an Internal Affairs investigation.
In the incident at 4944 Sarasota Dr., 24-year-old Marcus Berry said his aunt came to his residence to collect money he owed her for the water bill.
He said she became angry when he was not able to give her the full amount of the money. He said she got out of her car and came at him.
Police said there was an argument that "became physical."
Mr. Berry said he was punched by his aunt.
An officer said Mr. Berry had scratch marks across his left eye. Pictures were taken of his injury.
