Portland Police Officer Arrested for DUI After Crash

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

 

Portland Police Officer Daniel Chastain was arrested by Clackamas County Sheriff's Office on charges of Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII) - Alcohol, Reckless Driving, Reckless Endangerment, and Criminal Mischief in the First Degree.

Chastain was booked into the Clackamas County Jail and later released. The Portland Police Bureau was notified this afternoon that an off-duty Portland Police officer was involved in a traffic crash in Clackamas County where alcohol was a factor. 

Officer Chastain is a 17-year-veteran of the Portland Police Bureau and was assigned to the Tactical Operations Division. Officer Chastain was placed on paid Administrative Leave, which is standard procedure, pending the resolution of the case in Clackamas County. 

Officer Chastain was driving a City of Portland vehicle at the time of the crash as he was in an "on-call" status while off-duty. 

The Portland Police Bureau cannot comment further on a personnel matter because it could interfere with the process of conducting a neutral, objective internal investigation and the Bureau must protect public employees' privacy interests consistent with the Oregon Public Records Law and relevant collective bargaining agreements. 

Once the investigation is complete, this event will be the subject of an internal review and presentation to the Police Review Board.
