PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) – A ruling is expected to be made Monday about reinstating a police sergeant who was found not guilty of slapping his girlfriend.

According to an Associated Press report, Eugene Hlavac, 42, was fired after being charged with slapping his ex-girlfriend and dislocating her jaw.

He was found not guilty in April and an arbitration panel voted 2-1 to reinstate him.

A neutral arbiter and a union representative voted to reinstate Hlavac, while Deputy Chief Paul Donaldson voted against that.

Hlavac said his hand hit the 23-year-old woman’s face as he made a defensive motion to protect himself as she was punching him.

The hearing is expected to take place Monday afternoon.
