A city police patrol officer has been put on leave following his arrest Sunday on two counts of assault on a female while he was off duty.

Michael Ladle Hodrick, 27, was charged with the misdemeanors, posted a $2,000 bond and was released shortly after his arrest, records show.

He is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 17.

Police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said Wednesday that Hodrick had been placed on administrative leave, which is paid, while the charges are pending.

The charges do not involve Hodrick’s work with the department’s Patrol Services Bureau, which is in charge of the city’s five districts, Michael said.
