A veteran state police trooper will face a departmental review today, one day after he was in court for a hearing on charges that he beat his Transit police officer girlfriend inside his Quincy home this week.
Trooper Brian Dunn is on administrative leave pending today’s hearing.
A Quincy District Court judge yesterday refused a request by prosecutors to hold Dunn without bail because they said he posed a danger to the woman and the community.
Dunn’s lawyer said that he is the victim and that pictures of him after the incident show bite marks on his arm and that the cuts on his face were from his girlfriend.
Police responded to his Quincy home Monday morning. His girlfriend said he strangled and assaulted her.
Inside the home police found eight guns and between 500 and 800 rounds of ammunition. Metro/mn
