COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) — A judge in Columbus Municipal Court found a Mississippi Highway Patrol trooper not guilty of assault in a domestic violence case.
However, the judge did find Devodrick Sims, 33, guilty of malicious mischief, a misdemeanor.
City spokesman Joe Dillon said the judge ordered Sims to pay a $412 fine and restitution for a damaged windshield.
Court records showed the incident happened on November 11 at the Lehmberg Cove Apartments.
A woman accused Sims, who is based with the MHP in Starkville, of grabbing her by the arm and pushing her into a car door, striking her head.
The complaint alleged Sims damaged a vehicle by hitting the windshield with his fist.
He was not on duty at the time of the incident.
