A detention officer at one of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's jails is accused of violating a woman with a baseball bat, pepper-spraying her vagina, sticking a gun in her mouth, and more.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, William Glen Edmond -- identified in court filings as an employee of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office -- admitted to some of the allegations against him.

According to the documents, the 29-year-old victim, whom we won't identify, called Avondale police to her apartment last week to report that Edmond assaulted her.

Edmond "used a wrestling hold on her," removed her pants and underwear, and inserted a "wooden souvenir bat" into her vagina, the woman said.

Edmond then got in the shower after having sex with the woman, and the woman left. When she came back, Edmond was pointing a .40-caliber handgun toward her and ended up ripping off her necklace, tearing her shirt, and breaking her cellphone, according to the documents.

The woman's three children were standing by the woman during this.

When she went to police with this, she also told investigators about prior incidents involving Edmond.

In 2005, he pepper-sprayed her in the vagina and also used a Taser on her that same year, she claimed. He had also put a gun in her mouth before, thrown high-heeled shoes at her, and used "wrestling-type moves" on her, she said.

Police made a few attempts at a confrontation call between the two, but Edmond's phone was either off or out of range.

Police did interview the woman's 7-year-old daughter, who said she saw Edmond hitting her mom with a bat, but said she did not see him with a gun.

While this girl was being interviewed, Edmond somehow found out that interview was taking place and showed up to the child-advocacy center in Avondale, where he was arrested.

Edmond denied that he had pepper-sprayed the woman's vagina, but did admit to threatening to pepper-spray the toilet seat, so it would burn when she sat down, according to the documents.

He admitted to the baseball-bat incident but said he stopped doing it a couple of seconds after the woman told him not to.

Edmond told officers he was "irate" afterward and admitted to breaking the woman's necklace and tearing her shirt. He said he "did not remember" pointing a gun at the woman but said "it was possible," the documents state.

He said he did place an unloaded gun in the woman's mouth at one point and admitted to using a Taser on her, using a free one he received in "Taser school."

He said he "has anger issues and he is sorry," according to court documents.

Edmond was booked into jail on several charges, including sexual assault, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and endangerment. He's being held without bond.

The Sheriff's Office did not immediately respond to a request for more information about Edmond's employment.

UPDATE 11:16 a.m.: MCSO spokesman Joaquin Enriquez says Edmond, now a soon-to-be former detention officer, was hired in 2005. He was assigned to "custody services."

Not surprising sadists are one rung above pedophiles and like pedophiles the often seek employment where they can find helpless and available victims such as in military, law enforcement, prisons/jails, mental institutions, nursing homes etc., pretty much anywhere a adult can have some form of authority over another adult! One can see in who posts here whether they fit the profile of a sadist or not takes no rocket scientist or brain surgeon to identify the likely suspects with a twisted nature, mentality who if given the opportunity likely are sadists, and sadists do not exclusively practice their trade on adults only, they do it on children as well, that is why one can bet some of them posting here likely have had contact with CPS and have them criminal records for child abuse still putting them one rung above the sexual pedophiles but not much higher!

It is smart to always give 'The Good Guys' their very own personal Tasers (electrocution devices) when they complete 'Taser School' so they always have one to use whenever the mood strikes. And, Officer Edmond apparently passed Taser School with flying colors, and hopefully has a big diploma on his wall.

So the PDX New Slimes puts Arpaio's pic front and center for an article about an underling's peccadillos.  Will you put BHO's pic up when Janet Napolitano's vile sexual harassment lawsuit is covered?  You are on that  story? Right?

this may be taken wrong, I am having a hard time trying to word this one. Yes, the guy is a piece of shit, yes there are others working there who are too (there are some damn fine examples of upstanding human beings there too...................a couple of you will know who I am talking about in particular when i say the name "Hughes"), but one thing that isnt being touched off on in the article (but was observed in one of the comments below) is what about his girl friend? if she has been tased and pepper sprayed and choked before....................WHAT THE HELL IS HER MALFUNCTION?????????? what in the F*** did she think would happen if she stayed with him???? for gods sakes, why didnt she ever report this shit before?????? she isnt so much a victim as she is an enabler for his actions. if you see a kid who strangles cats, you dont give him a cat, so by the same logic if you know this idiot has tased, pepper sprayed, choked and assaulted you a few times previously..................WHY GO BACK??? it doesnt cost much to change the locks. i feel bad for her, sure, but i gotta wonder if shes on JAFfy's level of stupidity to keep walking face first into that wall. if you dont respect yourself enough to get the F*** out of an abusive relationship................have some respect for your kids and their safety and get the F*** out the door

I wonder what the OLD FART  has to say about this, where is the press release?....oh, I forgot...the OLD FART doesn't recall. N - Way, probably there's a big promotion waiting 4 this dedicated officer, since probably he fits MCSO's standards.

Let's see, a sex offender with "anger issues" Sounds like a perfect fit for the MCSO.



THIS AGENCY NEEDS TO BE PLACED IN RECEIVERSHIP!

I'm curious as to why this woman continued to put up with this treatment for so long.  Since 2005, when he pepper sprayed her vagina (ouch!) and tasered her?  Battered women's syndrome very likely?  I hope she's getting the counseling  and mental health care she needs. No one should have to live with that kind of treatment, and the kids certainly don't need to be involved in that mess either.

Edmund should have killed her, not only would he have kept his job, he also would have been promoted for it.

a lot of cops are rapist,it comes with the power given to them by the police state!

I know as my ex-wife was raped by a psyco cop,and covered up by "brother"cops

I guess it's a little selfish of me, as a taxpayer, to be relieved that the victim wasn't an inmate.

Does Joe test his employees for steroid use?

Maybe he should.

@Cozz 

It seems like MCSO finds their DO's after they have been fired as mall cops - for being too stupid and too aggressive.  Remember the one that was a prostitute on her off days, and the 3 do's that were working with a drug cartel?

@JAFFYCLIT, Listen bitch this thread has nothing to do with Zimmerman, refraim from mentioning that bitch. This is about another MCSO's "dedicated" officer whose been practicing what probably he's been thought by highly trained officers at the Circus that is MCSO. Fucking bitch, U've been trying to create controversy about UR other hero Zimmerman, 4 whom U probably R having wet dreams about, is not going to work bitch. ...Wait.....I think I heard the OLD FART calling U... I think I heard him saying...poop...poop...my diaper...poop...bag....bag full.....HURRY UP BITCH, CHANGE HIS DIAPERS AND EMMPTY THE BAG, CUNT.

@JoeArpaioFan we dont have to accuse him of shit.................he admitted to some of it and gave slightly differing accounts for some of the other claims. so since he is validating some of the charges, are we racist for agreeing with him?

@JoeArpaioFan So, in other words, you use pepper spray on Joe's member and he likes it?

@danzigsdaddy Abused women are often emotionally abused and intimidated into a feeling of utter helplessness. It is practically defined as a symptom of terrible physical and mental torture.

@IdontRecall Be careful who you call an OLD FART because somebody could say the same thing about your grandfather.

@IdontRecall Maybe you missed the updated information where it says he is no longer an employee. 

The question is, was he fired because of this incident or had he left prior to this arrest.

@jeanjb  

You know it happened once, so a lot of cops are rapists?

It's too common, not because the "police state" protects them but because the job attracts people who enjoy having power over others, but such severe abuses of that power are still too uncommon to claim that "a lot of cops" are rapists.

These types of "power crimes" are much more common among DO's than among police officers.

@Cozz tell me about it. i just dont get it sometimes................"no, no, he loves me thats why he almost killed me in front of my kids............if he wanted to really kill me he would have" for some F***ed up reason, many victims of abuse like this seem to develop some kind of warped ass stockholm syndrome or something. maybe to them it makes sense, but it really doesnt for me. no wonder cops dont want to deal with domestic disputes..............it has to turn their stomachs watching these victims defend or go back to their abusers

@JAFFYCUNT, So tell us jaffy, why did U put up with so much shit...I mean U got sprayed on the vagina with pepper spray, a bat was shoved up UR ass-probably that's what U loved the most- U were bitch slapped, U were given black eyes, baboon lips, no hole was left unprobed and U were begging 4 more and when U didn't get that U filed a police report? UNSPEAKABLE.

@JoeArpaioFan you are not sorry. you are as usual trying to imagine replies for anyone who dislikes Arpaio. you do the same thing with me about Obama and the dem party and gun control you just shoot off your mouth without reading what people are saying. so dont say you are sorry because you arent. what you are sorry about is that you got proven to be a person who spouts off about a comment before reading it

@valleynative,a more accurate example would B : Corruption at MCSO is as bad as some of Mexico's border cities,

 U found some bad cities. Don't assume they're representative.

@jeanjb The entire police force isn't dirty.  Corruption isn't close to as bad as in Mexico, for example.

You found some bad guys.  Don't assume they're representative.
