Wortham PD Officer Leonard Jimmerson is currently on Administrative Leave and his Texas Peace Officer License is on Enforcement Hold due to his arrest on July 13, 2017.
Court documents suggest that Jimmerson was seen assaulting his girlfriend of six years in the parking lot of a Balch Springs, Texas Walt-Mart shortly after midnight.
The accounts state that Jimmerson, while wearing a tee-shirt with Wortham PD insignia, was seen choking and/or grabbing, and/or body slamming his girlfriend, according to witnesses and an off-duty police officer that intervened to stop Jimmerson from continuing the assault.
Jimmerson has been charged with a third degree felony of assault on a family household member by impeding breath.
He shall remain on Administrative Leave until he is ultimately judged by his peers.
