S.J. police officer suspended, charged in domestic abuse
A South Jersey police officer has been suspended without pay after being charged in connection with multiple incidents of domestic violence.
Sgt. Michael Taulane, 41, of Collingswood, was charged Friday with a count of aggravated assault after police received a report of “ongoing domestic abuse against a female victim,” said Jason Laughlin, spokesman for the Camden County Prosecutor.
A 22-year veteran of the Collingswood police department, Taulane surrendered all weapons in his possession. He was released on bail and ordered to have no contact with his alleged victim.
