OKLAHOMA CITY – A former Valley Brook police officer was arrested in Oklahoma City.

Jamie Sanchez, 33, is accused of assaulting his 24-year-old girlfriend.

Oklahoma City police say when Sanchez's girlfriend tried to break up with him he threw her to the ground and handcuffed one of her wrists.

Police said he also followed her vehicle in his police car with lights and sirens blaring as she drove to an Oklahoma City police station to file a report.

"She did the right thing," Sgt. Gary Knight said. "She did not try to fight back she tried to get away from him ultimately she drove to a police station when she felt she was in danger."

The Valley Brook police chief said Sanchez resigned after he was released from jail.
