Arrest reports from the Columbus Police Department confirm a Columbus police officer and his wife have been arrested and charged with simple battery.

Sgt. Craig Haggas, 53, and his wife, 26-year-old Whitney Compton-Haggas, voluntarily surrendered themselves on Friday, June 27, at 1 p.m. on outstanding warrants that were issued the day before.  

The charges are misdemeanor, and the report indicates family violence as a factor in the arrest.

Haggas is a 20 year veteran with CPD who previously worked with the Sex Crimes Unit, and recently began working in the Financial Crimes Unit. 

Both defendants are out on $1,000 bond. Their cases will be heard in state court.
