The Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office filed an assault and battery charge against Sgt. DeLorn Sanders, of the Tulsa Police Department.

Sanders is accused of assaulting another police officer last month. Officials said Sanders was off duty at the time.

The incident happened outside a daycare at around 10 p.m. Officials said officers responded to a domestic violence call.

Sanders was allegedly involved in a family dispute while setting up a child's birthday party.

Records show that callers told 911 that Sanders went to his car to retrieve something, got into a struggle with one of the responding officers and allegedly hit him.

Tulsa police said Sanders has not yet faced any disciplinary action while an internal investigation is ongoing, but he has been reassigned.

Dashcam footage of the incident is expected to be released Thursday.
