Scott City officer served with restraining order

Saturday, December 1, 2001

A Scott City police officer was served two restraining orders Thursday and accused of stalking and harassing a fellow employee and her husband.

The ex parte orders, issued by Associate Circuit Judge David C. Mann, prohibit Lt. Roy Butler from contacting the woman, a dispatcher at the police department, or her husband in any way.

A complaint filed in Scott County court alleges Butler harassed the dispatcher while on duty.

A hearing should be held within the next two weeks to determine if the orders will be permanent. Until then, Butler has been placed on administrative leave from the police department.
