LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Mount Washington police officer appeared in court Monday and was due back later in the afternoon on a domestic charge involving his wife as well as an ex-girlfriend.

Police say in 2008 Officer Steve Cox broke into the home of his then-girlfriend - also a Mount Washington police officer.

In 2011, Cox's current wife said he assaulted her in their home, then put on his body armor, pushed furniture against the door and told her to call police.

According to court documents, Cox put a gun to his wife's head when she refused.
