The mistress of a Pennsylvania police officer spent three days in a mental hospital after he had her involuntarily committed when they broke up.
Ronald K. Davis, 37, is now facing charges for abusing his power and authority to convince peers to issue a mental health evaluation and section his girlfriend, Michelle Perfanov, in August.
Davis is married with kids, according to police records, but was having a relationship with Perfanov, also 37.
They were together for around for months until the romance soured. He then told her he would make her ‘look crazy’ – and did.

Pennsylvania State Police confirmed Davis had been suspended without pay today.
He is also facing felony strangulation and false imprisonment charges.
On August 21, Davis, who was off-duty at the time, and another cop tracked Perfanov down to a wooded area where she was trying to escape him.
He claimed he was trying to ‘help her’, but sat on her, fought with her and subdued her for over 12 minutes. The disturbing incident was caught on video by Davis’ friend, who had gone to help him arrest her.
Despite her protests, Perfanov was taken away to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Schuylkill, where she was held for 72 hours.

Perfanov had been living in the cop’s trailer while they conducted an affair, and he wanted her gone
After obtaining a mental health petition through his job, Davis arrested Perfanov and had her involuntarily committed
Perfanov was taken to the hospital and was held for multiple days before being released.
Doctors found she was not mentally unstable despite her the cop’s claims, and that she had only ever threatened suicide to him to get attention.

Now, it’s Davis who is facing charges including false imprisonment, strangulation, recklessly endangering another person and assault.
In text messages he told her: ‘You’re done. F**k around and find out. Get out of my house now.’
She had told him she was going to drive ‘off a cliff’, but later told police she was not suicidal, and only said it to ‘illicit a reaction’.
Davis was off-duty at the time of the arrest.
He had first gone to the station to obtain the involuntary commitment petition, then told his colleagues that he would take matters into his own hands after they were unable to find Perfanov.
‘I’ll take care of it myself,’ he said, before going off to find her.
Assisted by a ‘civilian companion,’ he then tracked her to the Pennsylvania State Game Lands in Weiser State Forest and attempted to carry her to his car before she began to fight back.
Perfanov had no understanding of why she was being arrested by her boyfriend, or why she was then taken to the hospital
Perfanov had no understanding of why she was being arrested. She spent five days in the hospital because Davis had been able to obtain a petition
Video released by the DA’s office shows her lying beneath him, streaked with dirt and nearly half his size, almost freeing herself from his grip, before being slammed back down.
She was taken to the hospital and held for five days before being released on August 26.
That is when she told cops how their romance fell apart. She told Davis she wanted to move to a new city to start over, which outraged him.
‘Taken in context, the texts revealed her frustration with Trooper Davis and his controlling behavior (and her desire to break off the relationship), not a true desire to harm herself,’ the affidavit says.
The criminal complaint accuses Davis of ‘knowingly or intentionally impeding the breathing or circulation of the blood of another person by applying pressure to the throat or neck.’
It says he restrained her ‘in circumstances exposing the said other person to risk of serious bodily injury’ and in doing so, acted in violation of Section 2902(a)(1) of the Pennsylvania Crimes Code, which refers to ‘unlawful restraint.’
Davis was charged with felony strangulation, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and official oppression.
He was remanded without bail after an arraignment on September 21.
