Cop fired after domestic-abuse arrest

Posted: March 20, 2014

PHILADELPHIA police Officer Robbi Huff, fresh off an arrest for domestic violence, has been given her walking papers.

Police spokesman Lt. John Stanford confirmed yesterday that Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey suspended Huff, 35, for 30 days with the intent to dismiss.

The Daily News reported Saturday that Huff was arrested Thursday when Cheltenham Township cops were called to her boyfriend's house on Arboretum Road near Rock Creek Drive on a report of a domestic dispute.

Cheltenham Township police Chief John Norris said Huff was "out of control" at the house, and that her boyfriend had "visible injuries to his face."

She was charged with simple assault and resisting arrest, and is expected to face a preliminary hearing in Montgomery County District Court next week, Norris said.

Huff was arrested at the same location in 2012 after an alleged domestic dispute. She had been scheduled for a hearing before the Police Board of Inquiry because of the 2012 arrest before she was dismissed.

Huff, a 15-year veteran of the force, previously was assigned to the Highway Patrol.
