Grundy County Sheriff Clint Shrum confirmed Friday that GCSO deputy Alan LaLonde was arrested for domestic assault and has since been terminated from his position with the department. The incident happened on the evening of July 12, after deputies received a call from the victim.
The victim stated she had gone to LaLonde’s house to speak to him about the child she is expecting by him. After that conversation, the victim asked if she could use the restroom to which LaLonde complied. The victim alleges as she started toward the restroom located in the master bedroom LaLonde grabbed her arm and shoved her against the wall leaving some bruising on her right arm.
Another female was present at the home at the time of the incident.
“I am extremely disappointed in the actions of our team member that has resulted in his termination from this office,” stated Shrum. An incident of this nature is unacceptable to me and only serves to tarnish and disdain the hard work done by the other members of this agency. Domestic violence is a serious allegation and will be taken as such by this agency,” stated Sheriff Clint Shrum.
LaLonde has been relieved of his duty for conduct below the standards of the office and conduct unbecoming. He was released on bond with a GPS monitor.
