    A Dallas police officer wanted on an aggravated assault warrant turned himself in to Dallas County on Friday.

    Dallas police issued a warrant for Officer Rashad Davis' arrest on an aggravated assault charge.

    Davis was arrested Dec. 6 on suspicion of assault. His girlfriend told police Davis pushed her during a fight at their apartment.

    He was placed on administrative leave during the investigation.

    On Tuesday, Davis' girlfriend called police about another fight. Officers said she sustained visible injuries. She also told police that Davis had pointed his service weapon to head in mid-November.

    Dallas police this week issued warrants for Davis' arrest.
