Reno Police Department Officer Brandon Neagle was arrested in Sparks on Wednesday for alleged domestic battery and driving under the influence.
It’s the second time in less than a year that Neagle has been in trouble with the law. Last August, he was cited in Sparks for a non-injury hit and run where he struck several parked cars in a neighborhood off Vista Boulevard in Sparks. He was off duty at the time of the incident.
Reno Police Chief Jason Soto confirmed Neagle’s arrest to the Reno Gazette Journal.
Soto said Neagle has not been on active duty with the department since that August 2019 incident. He’s currently on suspension without pay.
In February 2017, Neagle was involved in a non-fatal police shooting at the Seven Eleven Motor Lodge on West Second Street where he shot suspect Ronald Bailey three times after Bailey attacked a motel resident and then advanced toward an officer with a knife.
The shooting was deemed justified by the Washoe County District Attorney’s Office.
