CHESAPEAKE, Va. (VEN) — Antonio Z. Spruill (48), a Chesapeake Police Officer, has been charged with domestic assault.
In a criminal complaint, Spruill’s fellow colleagues responded to a 911 call from Spruill’s girlfriend at their Old Greenbrier Road home. She told officers that she and Spruill got into an argument and he grabbed her by the neck and choked her.
Chesapeake City officials actually conducted a minor investigation–as if he had a stellar record –and found that her written statement corroborated the urgency of her 911 call.
Spruill was apprehended on March 27, 2019 the same day the incident took place. The media went to Spruill’s home and tried to speak with him, but there was no answer. Chesapeake police department handled the situation by suspending him rather than firing him. This is Spruill’s second suspension –that I know of– from the department, .
Spruill is a Senior Police Officer with the Second Precinct in Chesapeake. He has been a police officer for 11 years.
This isn’t the first time Officer Spruill has displayed aggressive behavior toward a woman. In 2017, Officer Spruill harassed and publicly humiliated me for reporting crime in the West Munden area. He made matters worse in the community.
When this all blows over, Spruill is going to return to the streets of Chesapeake armed and dangerous to wreak more havoc on the innocent.
If this is how a senior police officer acts in Chesapeake, I’m not surprised that West Munden streets is still dirty.
