Stanley Savage, president-elect of the 100 Black Men of the South Metro, has been arrested on domestic violence charges after allegedly beating his pregnant wife and choking his six year old daughter. Stanley Savage was an Atlanta police officer for 28 years before taking a high-ranking position with Park Atlanta.
WSB-TV reports he spent time in jail before Christmas for domestic violence. “He’s accused of committing the act of domestic violence on the lady that called 911,” Josh Shelton of the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies said the call came from Savage’s wife, who is pregnant. According to authorities, she called to say Savage, who is the Park Atlanta director of enforcement, had thrown her into a wall multiple times for questioning him about choking her 6-year-old daughter.
Savage’s wife said the former 28-year major with APD said somebody was going to die after she told him she called police. Deputies arrived, and said they took a loaded gun from Savage and arrested him on two counts of battery and six counts of child cruelty.
