Fresno Police Officer Arrested

Officer Frank Dickinson was taken into custody over the weekend near an apartment complex at Cedar and Teague in northeast Fresno.

A neighbor called police after he heard a woman screaming and crying and the sound of something hitting a wall before an apartment window was shattered.

The police report states, "Dickinson proceeded to pick up a chair, which was placed aside the kitchen table, and threw the chair directly at the victim."

Frank Dickinson has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and inflicting corporal injury.

He posted a $45,000 bond and was released.

Dickinson is currently on paid leave from the police force.
