A Michigan State Police trooper was arrested on charges related to domestic violence.
Adam Mullin -- a member of the MSP since July 2016 -- was arraigned in the 73B District Court, Huron County Friday. He was arrested Feb. 12 and lodged in the Lapeer County Jail. After his arrest he was placed on unpaid suspension.
Mullin was charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, obstruction of justice, misconduct in office, assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer causing injury, aggravated domestic violence and felony firearm.
The charges were authorized by the Michigan Attorney General’s Office and are the result of an investigation conducted by the Michigan State Police.
"The MSP has a long-standing tradition of demanding the highest possible standards of professional conduct from its enforcement and civilian members. Regardless of whether a criminal charge results in a conviction, employees can still be subject to administrative penalties resulting from violations of department policy. All policy violations are investigated thoroughly and acted upon in a manner consistent with current labor-relations law and bargaining unit agreements," the department stated in a news release Friday.
