Auxvasse Police Chief Kevin Suedmeyer was charged Tuesday with misdemeanor domestic assault after deputies were called to a disturbance on a county road.

Deputies identified Kevin Suedmeyer as a suspect after they were called to a domestic disturbance near County Road 325 and Route H in the Carrington area, according to a Callaway County Sheriff's Office news release. Deputies arrested Suedmeyer that evening on suspicion of fourth-degree domestic assault, according to the release. The sheriff's office said Suedmeyer was off-duty at the time of the incident.

He was released after posting a $1,500 bond, the sheriff's office said.

The release gave no details about what Suedmeyer is accused of, citing the ongoing investigation. The investigation was referred to a special domestic violence unit in the sheriff's office.

Suedmeyer's tenure includes a city probe into his social media use in June 2020. He was briefly suspended and subsequently reinstated.

A call to the Auxvasse Police Department was forwarded automatically to the sheriff's office Wednesday afternoon. No one answered the phone at the City of Auxvasse.

No lawyer was listed for Suedmeyer in online court records.
