Officers determined the allegations were domestic in nature, Wright said. The Fairfax County police obtained two warrants, one for use of profane, threatening or indecent language over public airways and one for causing telephone to ring with intent to annoy.

Holecek is on administrative leave pending an internal investigation, according to Diana Klink, a city spokeswoman.

A number listed for Holecek was not in service Friday afternoon.
