A woman claims a Santa Fe parking enforcement Officer assaulted her. However, he says that’s not quite the case.

According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, Nicole Barker says officer Thomas Clokey was issuing her a parking ticket on Saturday.

She says Clokey became verbally aggressive and then physically assaulted her on the street. 

Clokey told police the woman struck his nose with a phone so he pushed her away. 

Police say the situation was a he-said-she-said encounter, so a statement of facts was not filed.

The city says it takes the allegations very seriously and is looking into the matter.
