A former Bedford Heights officer was placed on two years of probation for an incident in December 2016 in Akron involving this then-girlfriend.

Douglas Dardzinski, 40, of Cleveland, pleaded guilty under an agreement with prosecutors to abduction, a third-degree felony, and domestic violence, a first-degree misdemeanor.

Summit County Common Pleas Judge Paul Gallagher gave Dardzinski probation and a two-year suspended prison sentence last week.

“Mr. Gorman and I are satisfied with the results,” said Will Vasiliou, who represented Dardzinski, along with attorney Joe Gorman. “Mr. Dardzinski is looking forward to moving on with his life and putting the pieces back together.”

Dardzinski, who was originally on unpaid leave, resigned his job as a police officer.

The case was handled by the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office at the request of the Summit County Prosecutor’s Office.

Dardzinksi originally faced a long list of charges, including kidnapping, extortion, assault, disrupting public service and violating a protection order, with several including gun specifications. These charges were dismissed.

Prosecutors say Dardzinski forced his former girlfriend into his car on Dec. 9 at Spring Street and Maiden Lane in downtown Akron, assaulted her and drove her to Stark County.
