WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A Waco police officer has been arrested after an investigation into a possible assault of a suspect during an arrest. 

Police became aware of a potential criminal incident involving three officers. 

Officers Kevin Spicer and Adam Beseda of the Street Crimes Unit stopped a 2002 Cadillac for a failure to stop at a designated point. 

As they were arresting the suspect, Officer George Neville arrived on scene to assist. During the arrest, Neville grabbed the suspect, Qualon Weaver, around his neck. 

The Waco Police Department completed the investigation and a warrant was issued for Neville for a Class A assault that occurred during the traffic stop. 

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by News Channel 25, Neville "intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly cause of bodily injury" to Weaver.

The affidavit said that once in custody, Weaver yelled at Neville. Neville reacted to the yelling and took his left hand, grabbing Weaver by the throat. 

Neville gripped Weaver's throat long enough and with enough force to cause physical pain to Weaver. 

The affidavit states that Weaver was not resisting arrest or assaulting officers at the time of the Neville's assault. 

Neville turned himself in Thursday afternoon and was charged for Assault with Bodily Injury. 

"As officers, we are sworn to enforce and uphold the law. The behavior which resulted in the arrest of this officer is unacceptable," said Interim Police Chief Frank Gentsch in a press release.
