A former Shawnee police sergeant who was arrested in a child abuse investigation months ago now faces another felony charge in a separate case, court records show.
Darryl L. Bordeaux, 52, was still on the police force when the child abuse charge was filed in August. At the time of his arrest in that case, he was placed on paid administrative leave, but he is no longer associated with the Shawnee Police Department after turning in a formal letter of retirement over a month ago, the chief confirmed Tuesday.
His next court date in the child abuse case is scheduled Jan. 18, but court records show Bordeaux is now also charged in Pottawatomie County District Court with a new felony case of domestic assault and battery by strangulation.
That court filing from Dec. 13 shows he is accused, on or about Nov. 26, of pushing his forearm against his wife's neck in an attempt to cause great bodily harm. His next court date in that matter isn't yet scheduled.
