Award-Winning Cleveland Cop Arrested for Pistol-Whipping, Raping Girlf

Angered at finding his girlfriend with another man, an award-winning Cleveland cop attacked her as she slept, pistol-whipping and punching her several times in the face, pointing a gun at her and firing two rounds.

The bullets tore into a mattress inches from her head.

Patrolman Tommie Griffin III then forced her into the basement where he raped her at gunpoint Friday evening.

He then drove off but was arrested at gunpoint the following afternoon after Parma police tracked his phone, finding him at a bar at 1:30 p.m.

Now the 2009 winner of the department’s distinguished service medal is behind bars for rape, felonious assault and kidnapping, according to [__Cleveland.com.__](http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2017/01/cleveland_cop_charged_in_pisto.html)

The police report states that Griffin went though a “rough divorce a while back” and as a result, had taken an extended sick leave, which translates to getting paid for doing nothing.

But now he will be placed on unpaid suspension because he was arrested for a felony.

Griffin, 51, who has been a cop since 1994, found his 42-year-old girlfriend with another man on Friday, who informed the cop that woman had invited him over for the weekend.

Griffin allowed the man to leave, then waited for his girlfriend to fall asleep before attacking and raping her.

A relative of the woman became concerned when she would not answer the phone, calling Parma police to conduct a welfare check on her.

When they did, they found the home “in disarray” and noted the woman had suffered “severe” facial injuries.

The woman’s relative told police they had a “volatile relationship.”

The girlfriend reported him missing on December 6 after last seeing him at an Irish pub three days earlier. On December 9, he was hospitalized for unspecified reasons.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
