Newly released court documents say the Indianapolis police officer arrested Friday attacked a Noblesville Fire Department captain because the officer was jealous that the man had a date with the officer’s former girlfriend.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Officer David Reece, 45, is charged with two counts of battery, one count of residential entry and a count of criminal confinement. The last two charges are class D felonies that each carry a sentence of up to three years in prison.
According to a probable cause affidavit released Tuesday, Reece confronted Noblesville Fire Department Capt. Joseph Archer just before 11:30 p.m. Friday at a luxury home development in the 8800 block of William Penn Circle. The home is owned by Reece’s former girlfriend, Rebecca Churchward.
