CLEVELAND — A Cleveland police detective has received a 20-day suspension after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct, according to the police union.

Detective Daniel Lentz pleaded guilty to the disorderly conduct charge after he was initially charged with felonious assault for an incident in June of 2019 involving his daughter. A source tells News 5 she suffered a fractured wrist.

Lentz was hired by the Cleveland Division of Police in August 1997 and is currently assigned to the Homicide unit, according to police.

The police union says it will appeal the suspension.
