A Philadelphia police officer has been suspended for 30 days with the intent to dismiss following her arrest on assault charges in Cheltenham Township.

Robbi Huff, 35, also was charged with disorderly conduct, harassment and resisting arrest following a fight last week with her boyfriend.

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Huff was charged in a similar incident with her boyfriend in September 2012.

A 15-year veteran assigned to the prestigious Highway Patrol Unit, Huff is the former partner of ex-officer Richard DeCoatesworth. DeCoatesworth, who has been in jail for 10 months, is currently weighing a plea deal on charges that he raped two prostitutes and forced them to do drugs.

Huff was arrested March 13 on Arboretum Road near the Curtis Arboretum after police received a report of a domestic incident. Police Chief John Norris told the Daily News that Huff was allegedly “out of control” and her boyfriend had “visible injuries to his face.”
