Maricopa County Sheriff's Office deputy accused of domestic violence

A Maricopa County Sheriff's Office deputy and former reality TV show cast member was arrested Saturday on suspicion of domestic violence, authorities said Monday.

Deputy Deborah Moyer, who was featured last year in TLC's "Real Police Women of Maricopa County," was arrested in connection with assault and domestic violence, said Jay Davies, a spokesman for the Peoria Police Department.

Officers went to an apartment complex near 83rd Avenue and Thunderbird Road at about 6 p.m. in response to a 911 caller who reported hearing an argument from a nearby apartment, Davies said.

Officers suspect Moyer was the primary aggressor in an argument with her husband, Davies said. The name of Moyer's husband was not released. Police believe that Moyers scratched her husband on his head and upper torso, Davies said.

As Moyer was being taken into the police station, she reportedly looked pale and complained that she was having chest pains, Davies said. After Peoria Fire Department paramedics evaluated her, she was taken to a local hospital, Davies said.

Moyer faces misdemeanor charges, he added.

The four-episode reality show depicted Moyer and three other women in law enforcement as they juggled families and career.

  1. I'm wondering how they surmised who the primary aggressor was.
