Deputy Lisa Springer was arrested accused of beating up her live-in girlfriend. The charges were later dismissed.

CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) – Prosecutors have dropped a domestic violence charge against an Eddy County sheriff’s deputy.

The Carlsbad Current-Argus reports that the charge of battery against a household member was dismissed Tuesday at the request of the 5th Judicial District Attorney’s Roswell office.

According to a court docket, the charge was dismissed without prejudice, which means that it could be refiled.

A complaint filed in the case had said Carlsbad police were called to the home of Springer and her girlfriend in response to a domestic disturbance last month.

The complaint said Springer was heavily intoxicated and repeatedly had punched her girlfriend after accusing her of having an affair. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
