New details emerge about Capitol Police officer arrested for Aggravated Assault

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- A well-known officer with Kansas Capitol Police has been arrested on assault charges.

According to Shawnee County booking records, Michael Pagel, was arrested Sunday and booked on a charge of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and one count of Criminal Threat.

Pagel is best known for singing on social media with other officers. Their singing landed them on stage with artist Kelly Clarkson when she performed in Kansas City, and then again on her newly launched talked show.

Jail staff said he bonded out Sunday. His first court appearance will be on Monday.

Kansas Highway Patrol says Pagel is on paid administrative lead while the investigation continues.
