A Kansas State Trooper is arrested for a second time. Darrin Hirsh was arrested Thursday for violating a protection from abuse order.
The Barton County Sheriff says Hirsh will be held for 48 hours.
Last month, Hirsh was arrested for alleged domestic violence. At that time he was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, criminal threat, domestic battery, witness intimidation and violating a restraining order.
The aggravated assault charge stems from a 2013 incident during which he allegedly threatened his wife with a handgun.
Hirsh was released on a $50,000 bond after his first arrest.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says he is on administrative leave without pay pending an internal investigation.
His first court appearance is scheduled for July 21.
