JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown Post-Journal is reporting that a member of the Jamestown Fire Department who was charged earlier this month following a domestic incident has been placed on an unpaid leave of absence.
Jamestown Police chief and public safety director Harry Snellings says that 35 year-old Ryan DiDomenico has been placed on a 30-day suspension without pay pending a civil service hearing. The suspension was effective Feb. 20.
The suspension comes after Jamestown police were called to a residence at 23 Alfred St. the evening of Saturday, Feb. 17 for a report of a domestic dispute.
An investigation revealed DiDomenico allegedly held a female down on the floor against her will and brandished a handgun, firing a single round into the wall of the residence. DiDomenico also allegedly had taken the woman’s cellphone, forcing her to flee to a neighbor’s house.
DiDomenico is facing charges of second-degree menacing, first-degree unlawful imprisonment, first-degree reckless endangerment, criminal obstruction of breathing and fourth-degree criminal mischief.
