A former Des Moines police officer is in trouble with the law again.

Forty-six-year-old Stewart Drake was arrested Saturday and charged with domestic abuse causing injury.

According to the Des Moines Register a police report says Drake got into a fight with his wife late Friday after coming home from a bar.

She told police Drake pulled her from room to room by her hair and hit her in the eye.

He was released from the Polk County Jail Monday on bond.

The department fired the 21 year veteran of the police force in 2011 after his wife accused him of domestic abuse. A jury found Drake guilty last year.

An appeal has not yet been resolved.
