SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - A Santa Clara police officer has been accused of domestic violence, marking the fourth time an officer in the department has been arrested in the past two years.

The San Jose Mercury News reports (https://bayareane.ws/2gRlQDj ) that Officer Daniel Burde was arrested early Saturday and booked into the Santa Clara County jail on a charge of felony domestic violence.

Santa Clara police Lt. Daniel Moreno says Burde was off-duty when officers were called to respond to reports of a domestic incident. Moreno says the girlfriend’s injuries were apparent to responding officers, but not so extensive that she required hospitalization.

Burde is the fourth officer to be arrested in the past two years. Moreno says the number of officers accused of wrongdoing is unusual for the department.
