LAGO VISTA, Texas -- A Lago Vista police detective accused of injuring another employee with the department has been fired.

The detective, Lawrence Jonap, is accused of injuring another employee with the department. Jonap is charged with assault with injury.

An arrest affidavit says Jonap kicked a communications operator in the back.

The next day, Jonap hit the employee in the back of the head with a notebook and flicked his ear.

Jonap admitted to "nudging" the employee with his foot, but said he doesn't remember any other contact he had with him.

Jonap has been with the department for 14 years.
