Lago Vista detective charged after allegedly abusing co-worker
A Lago Vista detective is facing assault charges after allegedly kicking one of his co-workers in the back, flicking his ear and passing gas in his face.
It happened in early December, according to the arrest report from Travis County Sheriff's deputies.
A communications operator for the Lago Vista Police Department is claiming Detective Lawrence Jonap kicked him in his back, hit him in his head with a notebook, flicked his ear, passed gas in his face and then taunted him the next day by sarcastically asking how his back was feeling.
He's been arrested, charged with assault with injury.
The Lago Vista Police Department would not confirm if detective Jonap is on paid administrative leave or has been let go from the department.
