A San Jose Police Department officer placed on administrative leave was accused of masturbating inside a family’s home while on duty, a source tells the Bay Area News Group.
The allegation is the latest black mark for San Jose police, who confirmed earlier this week that another officer was being investigated for allegedly being under the influence of alcohol during the search for a kidnapped child.
The details of the sexual misconduct allegation were first reported by NBC Bay Area. A source familiar with the investigation told the Bay Area News Group that in late April, an officer was on an unspecified call for service in San Jose when he stepped away from a group inside a home and began to masturbate.
One of the residents speaking to police spotted the officer, and other police detained him, the source said.
A source familiar with the incident told the Bay Area News Group that the officer had a blood alcohol level of 0.139 — nearly twice the legal limit. The officer was reported by an FBI agent, who was working with the officer that day.
