Cristian Gallegos; Little Rock Police Department Officer Arrested, Investigation Underway

Shortly after 2:30 a.m. on Sunday September 25, 2022, morning, Little Rock Police Department officers responded to a call for battery at 6523 Brookview Drive.

According to reports, once officers arrived family members of the victim informed them that their daughter had been “struck” by a man identified as Cristian Gallegos.

Officers were able to determine that the victim was suffering from “physical injuries.”

Family members spoke with police and told them that Gallegos is an officer with Little Rock police. The officer was then taken to the Major Crimes Division, and after a preliminary investigation, was charged with 3rd-degree domestic battery.

Officer Gallegos served with the Little Rock Police Department since February 2019 but has since been relieved of duty and placed on paid administrative leave.

The investigation into this incident remains ongoing, and will also be reviewed by LRPD’s Professional Standards Division. We will update with more information as soon as it becomes available.
