A Newport News Police officer facing felony charges after police say he threatened to burn down his home has been arrested again for violating a protective order.
30-year old Christopher B. Hancock was originally arrested on Tuesday, April 8th at Newport News Police Headquarters after a five day investigation.
Detectives say it stemmed from a domestic incident that occurred with his wife at their Denbigh area home. Police say during an argument, Hancock threatened to burn their house down. A Newport News Police spokesperson tells NewsChannel 3 the department was notified of the incident after his wife filed a protective order with the court magistrate.
