Opelika Alabama - FORMER OFFICER INDICTMENT 21 September 2022 ( news )

Opelika , state Alabama
| 10| 2
   
   On 09/02/2022 , a Lee County Grand Jury indicted former Opelika Police Officer Isaac Dominy on one count of misdemeanor third - degree assault .  
   On 04/21/2022 , Opelika Police Department Patrol Supervisors were made aware of a use of force incident involving one of their officers . Following department procedure , an internal investigation began immediately to determine if the officer’s actions complied with administrative policies and procedures . At the conclusion of the internal investigation , the information...... was given to the Lee County District Attorney’s Office by the Opelika Police Department . The officer is no longer employed with the City of Opelika .  
   The District Attorney presented the case to a Grand Jury who indicted the former police officer on one count of misdemeanor third - degree assault . An indictment is a formal accusation of criminal conduct , not evidence . A defendant is presumed innocent unless convicted through due process of law . On 09/09/2022 , Isaac Dominy was arrested by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office . The case is currently pending trial in the Lee County Circuit Court . Additionally , in compliance with a July 2021 amendment to the Alabama Administrative Code regarding the use of force reporting , all information was sent to the Alabama Peace Officers Standards & Training Commission ( APOSTC ) , where they will conduct their own independent investigation .  
   The indictment stems from an incident in the early morning hours of 04/21/2022 , where a subject attempted to flee from law enforcement and crashed into a light pole at the Jeter Avenue and Raintree Street intersection . After apprehending the subject , Dominy arrived to assist other officers . The indictment alleges that Dominy struck the subject with a closed fist , causing a physical injury . No weapons were involved . The incident was recorded , and those videos have been turned over to the Lee County District Attorney’s Office as evidence in its prosecution . Inquiries about the videos should be directed to the Lee County District Attorney’s Office .
   Over the past two years , the Opelika Police Department has been focused on building and strengthening relationships within the community . Our goal is to be as transparent as possible regarding this incident while still respecting the court process . The City of Opelika is fortunate to have a strong Police Department under the leadership of Chief Healey . The Opelika Police Department is committed to upholding very high moral and professional standards . Chief Healey and the leadership of the Opelika Police Department take complaints of excessive force very seriously , and they thoroughly evaluate and investigate any incidents involving the use of force by City Police Officers . Furthermore , the Opelika Police Department will cooperate with entities that are part of the administrative review or criminal prosecution process .
   In the summer of 2020 , Mayor Fuller and the Police Department were invited to join a coalition started by the 100 Black Men organization that brought together community leaders , clergy , non - profit organizations , and local law enforcement agencies . The alliance was built to solidify relationships and work together to ensure accountability measures are built into the public review of police practices . To that end , Chief Healey met with some of the coalition’s leaders , Rev . Clifford Jones , Councilman George Allen , and United States Marshall Jesse Seroyer , and apprised them of the details of this incident .  
   Because the matter is now before the Lee County Circuit Court , and Chief Healey and his staff are potential witnesses in that action , no city employee is able to discuss this matter any further at this time .
