MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. (AP) - A sheriff's lieutenant is accused of assaulting a woman in North Carolina.

News outlets report that Morehead City police arrested 40-year-old David Paul Craft early Sunday morning. Documents say Craft grabbed a woman by the hair and pulled her to the ground twice at a bar.

The Craven County Sheriff's Office confirmed Craft is a lieutenant with the department. Sheriff Jerry Monette told WCTI-TV the department is conducting an internal investigation.

It's unclear if Craft has a lawyer.
