MARICOPA, Ariz. - A 41-year-old Maricopa police officer allegedly assaulted his wife and his 14-year-old son early Sunday morning.

Both the woman and the boy had minor injuries.

Boyd was arrested and booked in jail on charges of aggravated assault, Assault, Disorderly Conduct and Criminal Damage.

Police say alcohol is a factor in the case.

Boyd will be on paid administrative leave during the investigation.
