PORTSMOUTH, R.I. – A high-ranking Portsmouth Police officer is on the wrong side of the law, after getting arrested by the State Police.

Lt. George Grassi, 48, has been charged with domestic assault and battery, after the 37 year-old woman he lives with was treated at Newport Hospital for minor injuries. The arrest stemmed from an incident that happened on I-95 during a ride from Providence to Newport, according to State Police.

Grassi is a 17 year veteran of the force. He heads the patrol division. He is suspended with pay as Portsmouth Police conduct an internal affairs investigation.
