A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer was arrested and charged in Union County Thursday night after an alleged domestic dispute involving a woman, the department said Friday.

Michael Ray Snider, 32, was arrested shortly after 10:30 p.m. Thursday and charged with assault on a female, according to the Union County Sheriff’s Office website.

“The charges are related to an incident that occurred at Officer Snider’s residence in Union County,” a CMPD representative said. It was not immediately clear who the woman involved in the incident was or her relationship to Snider.

Snider has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the department’s Internal Affairs Bureau investigation, police said.

Before being placed on leave, Snider was assigned to patrol in the Independence Division and was hired by CMPD in March 2003, according to the department.
