This morning at approximately 2 AM, a deputy with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office was arrested by the Sacramento Police Department for suspicion of drunk driving near the 6400 block of South Land Park Drive. The deputy was driving an unmarked County vehicle but was not on duty, in uniform, or working in any capacity. The deputy has been placed on administrative leave pending a thorough internal and criminal investigation.
We take this matter very seriously and want to express our sincere apologies to the community. This is not who we are as the Sheriff’s Office or what we stand for.
Sergeant Amar Gandhi
