ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An employee with the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office finds himself on the other end of the law after police say he violated a family violence order.

Albany Police arrested 35-year-old Allen Wade Robinson Junior just before noon Sunday at his home in the 1500 block of Stuart Avenue.

This is the second arrest in just two days for Robinson. On Friday he was charged with battery and two counts of cruelty to a child stemming from a September 30th incident.

His live-in girlfriend reported Robinson hit her in the face in front of her two children. He was released from jail Friday on a 2,000 dollar bond and ordered not to contact the victim.

Sunday he violated that protective order, and was once again placed into custody. Robinson is a detention officer with the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office.
