Virginia Cop Arrested for Abduction and Strangulation of Woman, Police Say

A veteran officer with the Richmond Police Department has been arrested on domestic assault charges, officials announced Friday afternoon.

Ernest Ford, 40, was charged with felony strangulation, felony abduction and domestic simple assault, according to Richmond Police Spokesperson Gene Lepley.

The charges were brought as the result of an incident between Ford and a female companion that occurred last Tuesday in Richmond. The female received minor injuries, NBC News reports.

Richmond Police Chief William C. Smith said he was disturbed by the charges:

“I am disappointed by this officer’s alleged actions and will await the outcome of a trial. Anyone victimized by domestic violence should report those instances to the police so that we can provide support and assistance. We will provide protection to those persons who have been harmed and will seek justice for those who have been victimized. Domestic violence is particularly troublesome as it is difficult to prevent.”

Ford has been with the police department for 11 years, he was placed on unpaid administrative leave as is policy. An internal investigation will take place after the case is adjudicated in court.

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.
