A trial date has been set for Thomas LaCroix, who was acting police chief of Waltham when he was arrested by Maynard police for allegedly assaulting his wife and a female neighbor during two separate violent incidents in June.
Following a compliance hearing on Jan. 4, LaCroix will go to trial starting Feb. 13, said MaryBeth Long, a spokeswoman for the Middlesex District Attorney's office.
LaCroix is under house arrest by night, and can venture outside during the day if he wears a court-mandated GPS bracelet, representatives from the district attorney's office said. He was also ordered to stay away from the victims, they said.
LaCroix was placed on administrative leave with pay in June, according to city officials.
LaCroix is charged with two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon for allegedly striking the victims with a bicycle rack and a counter top. He is also charged with two counts of assault and battery, one count of assault, and one count of intimidating a witness, officials said.
