VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Charges against a Virginia Beach Police officer were dismissed following a reported domestic assault.

Master Police Officer Albert Joseph DeAngelis II, 48, was charged with domestic assault following an alleged incident that took place in June.

In October 2019, the charges against DeAngelis were dismissed when the victim exerted her Fifth Amendment rights and refused to testify.

DeAngelis, who is assigned to the Operations Division, Uniform Patrol, has been with the Virginia Beach Police Department for 17 years. He will remain on administrative assignment pending the results of the criminal and administrative investigations against him.

The case is being investigated by the Department’s Office of Internal Affairs and the Detective Bureau.
