Memphis police officer charged with assaulting boyfriend

A Memphis police officer has been charged with assault and vandalism, arrested early Saturday after she allegedly attacked her boyfriend and then damaged a Shelby County Sheriff’s squad car while being detained.

Sheriff’s deputies reported responding to a house at 12016 Macon in East Shelby County at about 2 a.m., where the boyfriend and a female witness said they had been drinking with MPD officer Amanda Wakham, 40.

The boyfriend told deputies he became upset when Wakham started kissing the woman. An argument ensued and Wakham struck him in the face with a kettlebell weight, according to a court affidavit.
