The Racine County Sheriff's department was called in to investigate.

The 29-year-old police officer, Kendal West, was arrested on charges including battery. The officer has been placed on administrative leave.

The investigation remains in the hands of the Racine County Sheriff's Department. The Kenosha Police Department is cooperating with the investigation. They state that the actions of the officer were not, in any way, connected to his official duties and run contrary to their mission.

An internal investigation is currently being conducted, as well.
