Clovis cop will not face charges after domestic violence arrest

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A Clovis police officer arrested on domestic violence charges will not face a criminal case. The Fresno County District Attorney's Office has chosen not to file charges against Officer Chris Hutchison.

Sheriff's deputies arrested Hutchison last month after a woman reported abuse. But Clovis police said he had a clean record prior to the arrest -- and the DA's decision could clear the way for him to return to work. But for now, Chief Matt Basgall tells Action News, Hutchison is still on paid leave.
