Albuquerque police union head arrested on child abuse charge.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The leader of the police union in New Mexico’s largest city, who has been a critic of federally ordered reforms of her police department, is facing child abuse and bribery charges after authorities say she repeatedly beat a teenage relative.The criminal complaint for Lopez’s arrest says the alleged abuse happened Tuesday, when Lopez allegedly hit her 14-year-old daughter “repeatedly in the head and facial area.” APD was notified Wednesday. Albuquerque Police Officers Association President Stephanie Lopez was arrested Thursday following allegations she hit the teen in the face and head during a fight over a utility notice, according to authorities. The abuse accusations against Lopez signify the latest in a spate of troubles for the city’s beleaguered police force, which has struggled to rebuild public trust following a series of shootings and a scathing federal report that found patterns of excessive force within the department. “At this time, no one from the department has read the criminal complaint or been briefed on the specifics of this case,” Albuquerque police spokesman Tanner Tixier said in a statement.

She allegedly warned the girl not to say anything when she dropped her off at school on Wednesday morning, the day after the incident, according to the complaint. At a safe house, the teen told authorities that Lopez’s two younger children witnessed the abuse, which started after Lopez became “extremely upset” upon learning a utility shut-off notice was posted on the family’s front door and the teen didn’t tell Lopez about it. With that being said I have only known Stephanie Lopez to be a loving single working mom who was doing her best to raise bright, caring and well-behaved children.
