Dallas Officer Arrested Second Time This Month

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) - Dallas Police arrested Officer Jerry Tames for the second time this month.

On Monday, July 23 he was arrested for repeated violation of a protective order.

Court documents show he contacted a woman he previously dated and subjected her to a barrage of early morning phone calls.

Tames has been put on administrative leave during the criminal investigation.

An affidavit says Tames was ordered not to communicate with the woman after his first arrest, but weeks later called her 13 times within a 41-minute span.

He has been on administrative leave since the previous criminal and administrative investigations.
