An 11 year veteran with the Winterville police is on paid suspension after his arrest Tuesday.
Officer Tommy Lymon is charged with domestic trespass and injury to real property in an apparent domestic dispute with his estranged wife.
Winterville police chief Billy Wilkes says Lymon was arrested Tuesday by sheriff deputies. Wilkes says Lymon and his wife had separated about two months ago and Tuesday had an altercation. The chief said there were no reports of an assault, but there was damage to a door.
Wilkes says Lymon has done a good job with the department. He is on paid suspension until the outcome of his trial.
