NYPD Officer Robert Castillo Arrested for Domestic Violence Assault

NYPD Officer Robert Castillo, 51, of the 42nd Precinct was arrested for domestic violence assault on his ex-wife over the weekend. His ex-wife called 911 after she says that Castillo came to her place, shoved her into a wall so hard that the telephone was broken when her head smacked into it, and punched her in the face hard enough to leave her with a swollen bloody lip.

According to mainstream media sources this is Castillo’s second arrest for domestic violence, but is not clear if they were talking about the same victim. Castillo was also arrested in 2017 for violating a protective order. According to the NYPD he has an unknown number of sealed arrests. We did a background check on him and found records of what appear to be multiple child support warrants. Those records are as follows:

We also learned that Castillo was one of three defendant officers sued in Sandel et al v. The City of New York et. al. in which “Defendant Officers forcibly entered basement of residence without a warrant, arrested Plaintiffs, took them to the 42nd Precinct, strip searched them (one Plaintiff was strip-searched twice), and charged them with disorderly conduct, which was later dismissed as legally insufficient.” (https://www.capstat.nyc/lawsuit/SDNY15cv8950/). That lawsuit led to a settlement of $38,500.
