Olathe, Colo. (AP) - A Western Colorado police officer faces a domestic violence charge after a woman claimed he beat her regularly as part of a relationship contract that called for corporal punishment.

Olathe Officer Michael Percival was arrested June 26 on suspicion of misdemeanor assault. Town Attorney David Masters says Percival has been suspended pending a hearing.

There was no answer Thursday at a number listed for Percival.

A deputy booking the woman into jail on unrelated charges discovered marks that the woman said came from beatings from a belt.

Investigators say the woman showed them two contracts allegedly written by Percival that concerned her hygiene, sexual behavior and clothing and spelled out punishments, including beatings with a belt.
