Suspended IMPD Officer Convicted On Eight Charges Related To Domestic Violence
INDIANAPOLIS -- A suspended Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer has been convicted on domestic violence charges.
Daniel Bullman was arrested in May 2016 after an investigation looked into allegations of domestic abuse.
Court documents show that over several years multiple incidents occurred where Bullman punched and kicked his wife. His estranged wife said he would try to get her to fight back. He even held his gun to her and their child's head.
She said the abuse began in January 2013 after the birth of their second child.
She filed for divorce in January 2016 and was granted a protective order against Bullman.
Bullman also threatened his fellow officers sending a message to his wife saying, "Right now I'm only interested in going to (IMPD officer) and (IMPD officer) and putting a bullet in their heads. I'm furious. This department failed. This city needs more dead cops."
Bullman was found guilty Tuesday of four counts of domestic battery, battery committed in the presence of a child, criminal confinement with a deadly weapon, intimidation with a deadly weapon and pointing a firearm. He's been suspended from the IMPD without pay, with a recommendation for termination after being with the department since 2006.
His sentencing is scheduled for September 27.
