DETROIT -- For several weeks, FOX 2 has learned the Detroit Police Department's Internal Affairs Division has been investigating the alleged actions of Commander James Moore. Within a 30 day period, he was reportedly involved in two domestic violence incidents with fellow female officer Deloma Stone.

"You may know more about that than I do at this point, but I will say to you that it will be dealt with," Mayor Dave Bing said.

According to internal affairs, Stone's young son called 911 in September and reported his mom had been assaulted by Moore outside a liquor store.

Not long afterwards, Detroit police were called to a home on Strathmoor on the city's west side. It's owned by Moore, but Stone was living there at the time. She told dispatchers she was having problems with her partner. When cops arrived, Moore was already gone.

Bing was asked about the incident during a press conference Monday.

"We've had issues in our police department with these kind of relationships, and it's not something that we accept," he said.

Bing pledged change is on the way.

"We are going to have some different policies that are going to come out that the city has never had before, and I'm probably a week, two weeks away from getting that (drafted) and (finalizing) that."

We were unable to reach Stone, and Moore wasn't home when we stopped by his house. The married father later told us by phone he has done nothing wrong and is not involved romantically with Stone.

We have learned this case was turned over to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, but no criminal charges will be filed because Stone is not cooperating with the investigation. Meanwhile, Moore could still be in trouble with the police department for not reporting the use of force.
