OZARK, Ala. (AP) – An Alabama police officer who was critically injured after being shot repeatedly while on duty in 2019 has been arrested on a domestic violence charge.

News outlets report 45-year-old Samuel Yoh was arrested on Wednesday after Ozark police responded to a domestic disturbance.

He was charged with third-degree domestic violence with harassment and held in the Dale County Jail.

Yoh was shot six times on Dec. 12, 2019, while answering a call while working for the Ozark Police Department.

After what police described as a miraculous recovery, Yoh recovered and returned to duty.

An attorney for Yoh didn’t immediately return an email seeking comment.
