The Commercial Appeal by Sara Patterson - January 19, 2012

A Memphis police officer accused of harassing his estranged wife was arrested Wednesday and relieved of duty with pay pending the outcome of an investigation, according to the Memphis Police Department. The same officer, 33-year-old Daniel Dermyer, was involved in a car accident last week that killed a 38-year-old woman. Dermyer was the passenger in a squad car that crashed into another car in Raleigh, killing Mervat Amalhi. Memphis police spokeswoman Karen Rudolph said the suspension and crash were unrelated. Dermyer's wife alleged in a court affidavit that Dermyer began following her in his truck when she left her apartment the night of Jan. 14. When she tried to lose him on Interstate 40, he sent her text messages stating, "so you have a boyfriend and you are southbound on 40 huh," and "hope someones home watching your kid, cops on the way, charge heard it on the scanner," according to the affidavit. A detective with the Shelby County Sheriff's Office, the investigating agency in the case, took photographs of the text messages, according to the affidavit. Dermyer's wife told investigators the couple has been separated since October. She also stated in the court document that the couple's two children, ages 4 and 6, were in Dermyer's Chevrolet Silverado truck with him while he trailed her. Dermyer has been with MPD since Oct. 12, 2009, according to a press release, and is assigned to the Old Allen Station. -- Sara Patterson: (901) 529-2542
