FREMONT (AP) — Two Fremont police officers have been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving over the past two weeks.

Authorities say 36-year-old Brendon Johnson was arrested on Saturday after he was spotted speeding and weaving on Interstate 580 in Livermore.

The second officer, 47-year-old Paul Singleton, was arrested on Feb. 3.

California Highway Patrol Officer Steve Creel says Singleton was pulled over after being clocked at 78 mph on southbound Interstate 680 around 11:45 p.m.

According to Creel, the officer smelled alcohol on Singleton, and Singleton failed a field sobriety test.

Fremont police declined to comment on the arrests, saying they were personnel matters.

    “Fremont police declined to comment on the arrests, saying they were personnel matters.”…. Can you comment on the not so personnel matters, like are they too going to lose there licenses for a year??

    At least those officers get to feel what it is like to get arrested, when they thought they were above the law… Just a sobering reminder of what it feels like to brake the law and actually not get away with it.

    It is nice to see that California and CHP is holding other officers accountable for their actions instead of treating them like family, and letting them get away with murder.
