CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) -- A Clear Lake police officer has been charged with misdemeanor domestic assault.

Court records say a preliminary hearing for 36-year-old Ryan Eskildsen is scheduled for Dec. 16. His attorney didn't immediately return a call Monday from The Associated Press.

Authorities have not released any details about the incident, which occurred Tuesday in Clear Lake. The Cerro Gordo County Sheriff's Office is investigating the case.

Eskildsen joined the Clear Lake force in 2002. Chief Pete Roth says Eskildsen has been placed on paid administrative leave.
