LAWYER: Officer Cleared In GPD Internal Probe

A lawyer for a Greenville police officer who was arrested last month in Winterville says his client is now back on regular duty.

Lukisha Pittman, a five-year-veteran of the department, was arrested in early April for resisting an officer after Winterville police said she refused to give officers her name, yelled at the officer and tried to get in her car despite warnings not to. Police were called to the parking lot of Roberts Welding after a call about a fight.

Pittman was placed on administrative duty after her arrest. David Sutton says according to an internal report from Greenville police, his client made no violation of departmental procedures. He says Pittman is now back on official duty with the department.

The officer still has her criminal charges pending, and has a June 14th court date.
