FAIRFIELD — A Solano County Sheriff’s Office official confirmed Tuesday that a deputy was arrested last week on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence.
The longtime deputy, Randy Ramos, was arrested after being involved in a two-car crash shortly after 11 a.m. Jan. 31 on eastbound Interstate 80 in Dixon. No injuries were reported. Ramos was not on duty at the time of his arrest.
A California Highway Patrol officer took Ramos to the CHP office in Fairfield where he underwent special testing. A CHP officer concluded that Ramos had been driving under the influence of an intoxicant other than alcohol. Ramos was issued a citation and released without going through the typical process of being booked into the county jail.
The District Attorney’s Office has not filed any charge for the incident.
Ramos has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the conclusion of the investigation into the incident, according to a Sheriff’s Office official.
