LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Two Louisville Metro Police officers are facing charges in connection with an incident that occurred while they were off duty.

According to court documents, Benjamin Lunte and Amanda Frederick are accused of assaulting two people at an Edmundson County, Ky. home.

Frederick was arrested June 25 when she appeared in court for a petition of an emergency protective order against one of the victims. According to the petition, Frederick listed the relationship with one of the victims as "unmarried formerly or currently living together."

Lunte was arrested June 26 when he turned himself into authorities.

Both were released from jail on their own recognizance and both are charged with assault, disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing.

LMPD public information officer Alicia Smiley said an integrity investigation is underway and both officers were placed on paid administrative leave.
