A Connecticut officer found herself on the wrong side of the law shortly after her appearance on Friday night’s premiere of A&E’s Live PD.
Sgt. Stacey Lyons was arrested for disorderly conduct in Trumbull, Connecticut following an incident with her ex-boyfriend. Police received a call early Saturday morning that involved a possible assault. After arriving, Lyons’ ex told officers that she had entered his home uninvited via a security code.
Court records state that he alleges he was confronted by Lyons after she discovered that another woman was in his home. Police stated that he had a cut to his nose and minor abrasions on his arms. He refused to file a written complaint or to receive medical treatment.
Live PD is a fascinating new series that has been described as Cops live (with a delay). Here’s a breakdown of the show via the network:
Over the course of eight weeks, dash cams along with fixed rig and handheld cameras, will capture the work of a varied mix of urban and rural police forces around the country on a typical Friday night. In-studio host, ABC’s Dan Abrams, alongside Dallas Police Department Detectives Rich Emberlin and Kevin Jackson will guide viewers through the night, giving insight to what audiences are seeing in real time, bouncing minute-by-minute between the featured police departments and offering an inside look at each live incident.
Lyons was seen in the first episode responding to a 911 call on a “known drug house.” As this event transpired live she was shown in a pre-taped and edited clip responding to a domestic violence call. During this arrest she asks a man who allegedly choked his wife for the codes to his gun safe. In route, Lyons explains to viewers how domestic violence calls are the most dangerous calls that an officer goes on.
Lyons’ attorney, Christian Young, told People that they would be addressing her charges “expeditiously, and we’re hopeful for a swift resolution so she can get back to serving the community.”
