University of Alabama Police Officer Arrested After Breaking Into Ex’s Apartment, Shoving Other Man
A University of Alabama Police officer was arrested this weekend after he allegedly broke into his ex-girlfriend's apartment and shoved another man who was inside, according to court documents filed Monday.
In a deposition filed in Tuscaloosa County District Court, investigators said the suspect, 48-year-old Randy Ford Sumner, showed up at the woman's Tuscaloosa apartment shortly after 1:30 Saturday morning.
Sumner, a UAPD officer, "physically ran through" the woman and her front door, then kicked in a bedroom door and shoved the second man, according to the document.
The male victim's glasses were knocked off his face, but he was able to get away from Sumner and run from the scene, the deposition said.
Both Sumner's ex-girlfriend and the second man reportedly suffered minor injuries during the incident.
Police arrived at the apartment complex, and Sumner allegedly told them he was armed, removed a .380 caliber handgun from his pocket and was arrested without further incident.
The female victim told investigators that she dated Sumner for three years, but they broke up last month.
A Ring doorbell camera reportedly caught the break-in on camera, and Sumner, a Duncanville man, was formally charged with first-degree domestic violence burglary, which is a Class A felony.
He was booked in the Tuscaloosa County Jail but has since been released on a $30,000 bond. His mugshot was not publicly available Monday afternoon.
