A Loudoun County Sheriff's Office deputy and school resource officer has been placed on paid administrative leave after being arrested for a domestic-related incident in Frederick County last week.
Joshua Mowery was arrested and charged early Sept. 16 with assault and battery of a family member, according to Frederick County Sheriff's Office arrest reports. The arrest happened around 3:58 a.m.
A Loudoun County Sheriff's Office spokesman on Monday confirmed Mowery was on paid leave pending an internal investigation.
Mowery, 39, is the school resource officer for the recently opened Independence High School in Ashburn, according to an Aug. 29 Facebook post from the sheriff's office.
Numerous calls to the Frederick County Sheriff's Office seeking more information on the incident had not been returned as of midday Tuesday.
