Tech officer back on regular duty after being arrested

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Texas Tech police officer was allowed back on regular duty Tuesday after two months of being assigned to "administrative duties," according to the University. 

Officer Jack Floyd faces an outstanding charge of Class A Misdemeanor Domestic Assault after a November 30th incident.  Officer Floyd was subject to a protective order, and according to the University the order did not allow him to carry a weapon.  The University also says the order has expired and therefore Floyd was able to go back on regular duty. 

The University says, like any Texas law enforcement officer, if Floyd is convicted of a Class A Misdemeanor he would no longer be able to carry a weapon.  Texas Tech says under such a circumstance his employment would have to be re-evaluated.
