Kennewick police are handling an investigation in recent allegations against a Yakima police captain.

Captain Rod Light was placed on administrative leave earlier this week -- a complaint containing divorce papers between Light and his wife Darla was filed last week by a person outside of the police department.

The documents state Light had threatened his wife's life and allegedly beat her, Darla Light was then prompted to seek a protection order against Light.

Light has served 28 years with the Yakima Police Department.
