JUPITER, FL (WFLX) - According to Jupiter Police, Palm Beach County Sheriff's Deputy Konstandino Patzanakidis violently confronted the mother of his 5-year-old child. 

Fox 29 obtained the 911 call the victim made shortly after that altercation. Here's a partial transcript:

Dispatcher: "911 emergency."

Victim: "Um, I just got slammed on the counter."

Dispatcher: "Who slammed you?"

Victim: "Um, my significant other, or my ex, or boyfriend, whatever."

Dispatcher: "Do you need medical attention?"

Victim: "Yeah".

We also obtained a copy of the police report of the incident. A closer look at the that report shows more detail about this case of domestic battery. The victim told police Patzanakidis ripped off her glasses. He then grabbed her by the back of the neck and pushed her head and face into the kitchen counter-top. Here's more from the victims call to police:

Dispatcher: "Are you bleeding?"

Victim: "A little yeah."

Dispatcher: "Did he slam you head on the counter?"

Victim: "Yeah."

During that same call, the victim told police Patzanakidis snatched the phone from her hand and told her he loved her and apologized. The sheriff's deputy then begged the victim not to call police. But the call had already been made. The victim also told police she was approximately eight weeks pregnant with Patzanakidis's child, and that he knew she was pregnant.

Paramedics and police officers were dispatched to the house.

This police report says the department of Children and Families is now involved.

Meanwhile, Patzanakidis, a sergeant with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office, is on paid administrative leave.
