A suspended Syracuse Police officer has been arrested for the third time in three months.
Ahmad Mims, 34, was arrested on Dec. 18 after he refused to let a woman out of his vehicle, according to police.
He is also accused of violating an order of protection during a domestic incident that took place in the town of Clay.
Mims was charged with first-degree criminal contempt and first-degree unlawful imprisonment, both felonies.
Mims is currently suspended with pay from an earlier arrest.
Syracuse Police issued the following statement in response to Mims’ third arrest:
We are aware of Ahmad Mim’s latest arrest. We will review this arrest, along with his previous charges. While these incidents are being reviewed, he will remain on administrative leave with pay, per our policy. We understand the severity of these allegations, and can assure that they will be handled appropriately.
Mims was transported to the Onondaga County Justice Center in Syracuse for centralized arraignment.
