Once Hailed As A Community Service Hero, Fort Worth Officer Damon Cole Facing Family Violence Charges – CBS Dallas / Fort Worth
FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A Fort Worth police officer profiled by CBS 11 News for his community service in the fight against child cancer and his once insistent pursuit of a cow at large has been arrested.
Police officer Damon Cole was arrested on April 8th on charges of continued family violence and interference with emergency relief efforts.
The arrest came after police responded to a domestic disturbance call on March 26 near the 7,300 block of Cascade Court.
According to police, 44-year-old Cole was charged after an investigation by the division and internal affairs division. After Cole was released from custody, he was placed on limited duty – with no police force and with his badge and equipment – and was assigned a non-police role until the investigation was completed.
Fort Worth Police said they would not release any further information about Cole’s arrest and prosecution – by the Tarrant County District Attorney – to ensure the integrity of the criminal process.
In addition to a 2016 story where Cole dutifully sat by his sick father’s bedside, he and other officials were featured in a 2019 CBSDFW.COM post as they worked to quarrel nearly two dozen cows that broke free and were making their way into a residential area of Tarrant County.
In early 2019, Cole also featured on CBS 11 News for hooking up with a teenager who got the young girl pregnant and rewarded after keeping promises to return to school – and make good efforts – and they respect parents.
