Metro Capt. Charles Hank is scheduled to appear in Justice Court this afternoon to request the removal of a Temporary Protective Order issued following a May 13 incident in his home that is being investigated for possible domestic violence.
Hank was not arrested after police were called to his residence in the southeast end of the valley. A crime report over the domestic dispute has been submitted to the District Attorney’s office for possible prosecution, Metro Deputy Chief Kathleen O’Connor said Monday.
Reliable sources familiar with the inquiry say Hank’s wife called police after an argument with her husband, but she showed no signs of physical trauma at the scene, declined to give a statement, and later recanted her complaint and asked that it be withdrawn.
Metro’s Domestic Violence unit was dispatched to Hank’s home to avoid the appearance of conflict.
Hank joined Metro in 1989. As captain, he is in charge of the department’s Convention Center command.
The incident set off substantial speculation inside Metro with talk that Hank had been arrested and given a “walk-through” at the Clark County Detention Center. But that’s not the case, informed Metro sources say.
