SALISBURY, N.C. (WBTV) -An officer with the Salisbury Police Department was arrested Wednesday after a domestic violence incident was reported.

Michael B. Scroggs was charged with misdemeanor assault on a female following an investigation into the alleged incident.

He was arrested by the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office and was off duty at the time.

Officers say that once he’s released on bond, Scroggs will be placed on administrative leave with pay pending further investigation by the department’s Professional Standards Unit.

According to Salisbury Police Department, Scroggs has been employed since 2021 and was assigned to field training.

“The Salisbury Police Department is fully cooperating with Rowan County Sheriff’s Office in the investigation of this incident,” Salisbury Police Chief Jerry Stokes told WBTV. “This certainly is not what we expect of our officers, even if off duty.”
