Lompoc police officer arrested for violating court order
November 30, 2014
Santa Barbara County Sheriff deputies arrested a Lompoc Police officer for the second time in less than two months because of domestic violence allegations.
On Thanksgiving, Matthew Lee Hill, 29, allegedly contacted his ex-girlfriend in violation of a court order. On Friday, deputies arrested Hill and transported him to the Santa Barbara County Jail.
On Oct. 19, Hill’s neighbors called 911 to report a disturbance at a Vandenberg Village residence. At the time, Hill was off duty.
Hill was booked into jail and then released on $25,000 bail. Last week, a judge told Hill he was not to contact his ex-girlfriend.
Hill then allegedly contacted the victim at a home on North F Street in Lompoc on Thanksgiving and was arrested the next day.
