An investigator with Pittsburgh's Office of Municipal Investigations has been charged with simple assault stemming from a domestic violence incident at her home early Sunday.
Pittsburgh police said Kelly Henretty, 42, of Overbrook, caused scratches to a man's face when she pushed past him in an attempt to get inside their bedroom, where she had accused him of hiding another woman, according to a criminal complaint.
The man, Jeffery Larkin, told responding officers that he was having an argument with Ms. Henretty and he wanted her to leave. Police wrote in the complaint that they could see him bleeding from the mouth and he had scratches on his forehead.
Ms. Henretty, they noted, had no visible injuries.
"Due to Larkin's statements and injuries, Henretty was placed into custody for domestic violence," according to the complaint.
A police supervisor was advised of the arrest because Ms. Henretty noted that she is a city employee.
Ms. Henretty has been employed by the city since January 2002, according to a roster of city employees. She remains on the job, which includes investigating civilian complaints against city employees, including police officers and firefighters.
