A Fort Dodge Police Officer is in custody after an alleged domestic assault incident. Police Chief Tim Carmody says at about 2:40am Tuesday morning, 39 year-old Kim Chansler reported that she was assaulted by her 41 year-old husband Jody Chansler. Jody Chansler is a Fort Dodge Police Officer who was off-duty at the time. To avoid a potential conflict of interest, the Iowa DCI was requested to investigate the alleged incident. Chansler was booked into the Webster County Jail on a simple misdemeanor charge of Domestic Assault. He is scheduled to appear in Webster County Magistrate Court Wednesday morning. Chansler has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the case and investigation.
