A Yukon police officer is back on duty this week after he plead guilty to assault.

The incident happened in November 2015. Officer Zachary Bradford was off-duty when investigators said he assaulted a woman after a late-night party in Oklahoma City.

In March, Bradford reached a plea agreement with the Oklahoma County District Attorney. He plead guilty to the assault and the agreement is to have one year of supervision by the district attorney.

According to court documents, Bradford must also complete 40 hours of community service work and pay some fines and court fees.

Oklahoma County District Attorney, David Prater, says the victim didn’t want to pursue anything beyond the criminal misdemeanor charges.

The City of Yukon’s public information officer said no one would go on camera. She said the police chief confirms Bradford was reinstated and back to work on Saturday.

In part, the statement reads:

"The Police Department completed an internal investigation and the officer has received discipline. Because this is a personnel issue, we have been asked to refrain from providing additional details regarding the internal investigation and discipline."
