A judge acquitted two Alabama police officers accused of assaulting a woman who claims she caught them having an affair.

Municipal Judge Michael Broom issued innocent verdicts for 31-year-old Zachary Charles Blanton and 27-year-old Brandi Leigh Reed during a non-jury trial Thursday.

The two are Decatur police officers. They were charged with misdemeanor harassment after allegedly assaulting 22-year-old Hailey LaMar in nearby Hartselle.

The Decatur Daily reports LaMar is Blanton’s sister-in-law. She testified she went the home of Blanton and her sister in May and heard what seemed like sex sounds coming from a bedroom.

LaMar testified her sister was out of town and she kicked down the door. A fight followed between LaMar, Blanton and Reed.

Blanton and Reed deny having an affair but remain on administrative duty.
