Chandler Officer Assaults Girlfriend

pennell-scottChandler Officer surrenders after being questioned about abuse allegations.

The altercation started when Officer Scott Allen Pennell was opening his girlfriend’s mail.  When she caught him doing so, their verbal argument escalated.  According to court documents, he shoved her down and attempted to strangle her.  The next morning, Officer Pennel also called his girlfriend’s mother – threatening to shoot and kill her daughter.

A forensic nurse examined the woman and determined her injuries were consistent with strangulation.

Officer Pennell has been added to the Cop Registry.



According to public records, the case is adjudicated without a judgment. Scott claims he was dismissed on 12/05/2014, but when I check public records, the last entry was 11/10/2014.  I’ll update this if/when I get more info.

    Email me and I will provide you with official paperwork showing case was dismissed. This is ridiculous. The name of a great officer was destroyed by this so called victim, who is a proven liar. Once all the evidence was reviewed all charges were dismissed as the prosecution proved none of the allegations happened and the so called victim lied. The prosecution did the right thing by dismissing with prejudice. It would be great if sites like yours followed up and then placed the truth out there so good officers don’t end up on here for unjustified reasons.
