Shelby County Sheriff's deputy Michael Stevenson, who serves as the school resource officer at Kingsbury High School, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with aggravated assault and domestic violence after a situation with his pregnant wife.

Stevenson's wife, who is 16 weeks pregnant, told detectives that Stevenson became angry and pushed her against a wall, slammed her onto the bed, and choked her after she woke him up to discuss marital issues. 

She called police, and Stevenson was arrested without incident. He's been relieved of duty without pay pending an internal investigation. Stevenson has been with the sheriff's office since 2009.
