(York) -- York County's Police Officer of the Year has been charged with assaulting his wife.

34-year-old Bryn Lindenmuth is facing simple assault, false imprisonment and harassment charges.

Authorities say he ripped off some of his wife's clothes, scratched her and refused to let her leave her home after she returned from a cookout Saturday night.

West Manchester Township police say she was able to run to a neighbor's and call 911.

Lindenmuth was named York County's Police Officer of the Year in 2015 for making 16 DUI arrests, filing 45 criminal charges and conducting 350 traffic stops.

He has been placed on paid leave by the Southwestern Regional Police.
