The Chula Vista Police Department announced today that another San Diego police officer is under criminal investigation. The case has been referred to prosecutors for possible charges, police said, but other details are scarce at this point.
Chula Visa police said they contacted an off-duty San Diego police officer May 20 “based on observations made by another motorist.” Police did not identify the officer or provide any other information about the incident. The officer has not been arrested, police said.
San Diego Police spokeswoman Lt. Andra Brown told Fox 5 that the 19-year veteran has been placed on unpaid administrative leave while the department conducts its own internal investigation.
