Amy Walling was reduced in rank from sergeant to officer and given a 30-day suspension without pay after an internal affairs investigation determined she bit a fellow officer and another person and struck another officer during an April 2016 fight with Jupiter police Sgt. Jason Vansteenburgh, according to the investigation. The two had been involved in a long-running romantic relationship.
