An Atlantic City police officer is facing an aggravated assault charge after an alleged domestic-violence incident involving his girlfriend.
Dayton Brown, 44, of Galloway Township, was arrested Tuesday after an anonymous citizen reported him to the department’s Internal Affairs Section. Brown’s girlfriend, whom authorities will not identify, was interviewed by police after being taken to the hospital.

The victim sustained nonlife-threatening injuries, according to a statement by the Atlantic City Police Department.
Brown, a 10-year veteran of the department, is suspended without pay and was taken to the Atlantic County jail pending a court appearance.
The Associated Press reported that Brown was sued in 2014 by a woman who claimed he choked her and slammed her head against a wall at a casino. That case was settled and he was never charged.
