Over the weekend, officers with the Wrentham Police Department arrested Michael Atton, a Massachusetts State Trooper.

Massachusetts State Police have relieved Trooper Atton of his duties and responsibilities until an internal hearing is held.

At his appearance in Wrentham District Court, Atton pleaded not guilty to domestic assault charges and he was released on $5,000 cash bail.

Additionally, the court has ordered that Atton stay away from and have no contact with the victim, and submit to a mental health evaluation.
