Hartford officer arrested after domestic disturbance in Vernon, police say

A Hartford police officer is on leave after her off-duty arrest on a domestic assault charge in Vernon, CT, police said Friday.

Officer Shameal Samuels, 28, was arrested Tuesday night and charged with third-degree assault and second-degree breach of peace, police said. The charges are Class A and B misdemeanors, punishable by up to a year and six months in jail, respectively.

Vernon police said officers were called to the Spare Time bowling alley, 350 Talcottville Road, about 7:40 p.m. Tuesday for a domestic disturbance. They began investigating and found that Samuels “had assaulted her roommate and girlfriend, violating Connecticut domestic violence laws,” according to a police report.

Samuels was placed under arrest and taken to the police department, where she was booked, police said. She posted $1,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Rockville Dec. 17.
