Pueblo police officer arrested for domestic violence

PUEBLO, Colo. (KKTV) - A Pueblo police officer is facing charges of domestic violence and assault against his wife, who is also an officer.

Donald Lambert, 39, was arrested following two separate incidents.

According to arrest papers obtained by 11 News, on July 5 the couple got into a physical fight, but police were not called. Lambert allegedly pushed his wife into a window and bruised her arm.

Then on July 7, the two were arguing over money when Lambert reportedly grabbed his wife's shirt and bra to look for money. His wife explained to investigators she sometimes keeps money in her bra, but at the time she wasn't. During the July 7 incident, Lambert's wife said her chest was scratched.

Lambert was arrested on Tuesday following the two incidents for third-degree assault and domestic violence.

In 2010 Lambert was accused of domestic violence against his wife, but that case was dismissed by the district attorney's office. According to an affidavit filed in 2010, Lambert allegedly punched his wife in the chest, pulled her hair and pushed her in the chest area.
