A northwest Indiana firefighter has been charged with battery, accused of throwing a female police officer into a snowbank last winter.

Thirty-eight-year-old Kevin S. Stumpe of Dyer, Indiana, is charged with felony battery stemming from the February incident involving Schererville police Officer Jennifer Zukley.

According to court documents, Zukley and Stumpe were responding with three other firefighters to an alarm call in Schererville, Indiana, and Zukley was standing near the entrance of the building when Stumpe asked if she knew what a white wash is.

He allegedly directed her outside and squeezed Zukley’s neck and slammed her into a pile of hardened snow.

Zukley told detectives she repeatedly told Stumpe to stop and tried to resist going into the snow.
