Labathe was accused of striking a woman as he backed up in his vehicle during an argument on Aug. 15. 

According to the criminal complaint, the woman said Labathe grabbed her wrist during the argument, and she feared for her safety.

A department spokesperson confirmed Monday that Labathe, who has been with the department since February of 2007, remains in the administrative role he was assigned to in March.
