YUKON, Okla. - A Yukon police officer convicted of assaulting a woman is back on the job.
Zachary Bradford was suspended with pay when the incident happened back in November of last year.
His first day back with the Yukon Police Department was Saturday.
Bradford has been on suspension since the night he was arrested for dragging a woman out of a car by her hair.
According to police reports, the woman said she had been sitting in a car in the driveway during a party when Bradford came out of the house and knocked on her window.
The woman said she opened the car door and was grabbed by the hair and dragged onto the concrete driveway.
The man who hosted the party didn't stepped in to help.
“She was bleeding from her neck," he said. "She was crying and shaking."
The woman told police she had never met Bradford before that night and didn't know why he attacked her.
Bradford left the scene on foot.
He was found shirtless a short time later and arrested.
According to a statement from the city of Yukon:
"The Police Department completed an internal investigation, and the officer has received discipline. Because this is a personnel issue, we have been asked to refrain from providing additional details regarding the internal investigation and discipline."
Bradford reached a plea agreement with the Oklahoma County District Attorney's Office.
He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of assault and battery and was given a one-year deferred sentence.
As a part of his plea agreement, he has to attend AA meetings, see a counselor and complete community service.
