Cop Accused of Physically Attacking and Tasing Girlfriend in Jealous Rage

Harold Thompson

A police officer is accused of physically abusing his girlfriend in an act of jealous rage. The girlfriend reported to police that following the attack he returned a second day to use a taser on her and continue his physical assault. The cop, identified as twenty-four-year-old Police Constable Harold Thompson, appeared before Senior Magistrate, Tricia Pitts-Anderson where he was read three criminal offenses, one count of damage to property, one count of common assault, and one count of harm.  Twenty- three- year-old Monica Rowley reported to police that on Friday June first P.C. Thompson visited her home and began to accuse her of being with her ex-boyfriend. In the process, Thompson allegedly slapped her on the left side of her face causing pain.  Rowley claims that they both got into argument and then Thompson left. He allegedly returned the following day, just after midnight, with a taser. Rowley claims P.C. Thompson approached her, so she picked up two pint bottles and threw them at him. That is when he allegedly ran towards her and began choking her. According to Rowley, P.C. Thompson then began tasing her on the left leg before leaving. She says Thompson returned a third time, on July seventh, when he damaged her mirror, broke her fan and left a hole in the wall. She alleges that P.C. Thompson also kicked her in the stomach that day. At his arraignment, the prosecution objected to bail on the ground that Thompson may return to inflict further injuries on his girlfriend. The prosecution also asked the court to take into consideration the seriousness of the offense. When Senior Magistrate Pitts asked Thompson why she should grant him bail he responded alleging that he cannot afford to go to jail because the allegations were fabricated by her to get him behind bars.   While Senior Magistrate Pitts-Anderson says she heard the argument of the Prosecution on behalf of the victim, in the end P.C. Harold Thompson was granted bail in the sum of two thousand dollars, plus one surety of the same amount which he met.  Thompson’s next court date is set for August twenty-ninth, 2022.
