Cleveland Police Officer Fired After Charges of Domestic Violence

(Cleveland, OH)- A Police Officer in Cleveland was fired this week after more than a year after he was charged with domestic violence.

Director of Public Safety Karrie Howard, in a letter of termination, announced that David Carpenter, 38 is no longer employed as a Payroll Officer.

The letter references the incident on February 14, 2020 where Carpenter pushed a woman down a flight of stairs while he was intoxicated.

The initial charge was domestic violence but it was lowered to disorderly conduct as part of a plea agreement.

Carpenter was hired by the City of Cleveland in 2015 and most recently worked in the Second District.
