Ex-Louisville police officer pleads guilty to beating wife
WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) – A former Louisville Metro police officer has pleaded guilty to beating his wife last winter as she drove home from a Super Bowl party.
News outlets report Clark County Circuit Judge Andrew Adams sentenced Jonathan Osborne to six months home incarceration and 20 months of supervised probation on Monday after he pleaded guilty to a felony count of battery resulting in moderate bodily injury.
Deputies said that on the night of Feb. 1, Osborne was intoxicated and punched his wife in the face while she was driving. The car veered off the road, crashing into a tractor.
Surveillance camera footage then shows Osborne punching his wife in her face, knocking her to the ground and kicking her.
Court records say a passerby pulled over and restrained Osbourne until deputies arrived.
