Detective arrested for DUI

SPOKANE, Wash. - A Spokane Police Detective was arrested early this morning for suspicion of DUI near Francis and Calispel. The 16-year veteran officer, Jeff Barrington, was off duty when he was contacted on a traffic stop, conducted by a Washington State Patrol Trooper.

Since Detective Barrington was cited and released, the criminal investigation has been concluded.  The Washington State Patrol will be responsible for forwarding charging documents to the Courts.  Spokane Police Department will initiate the Internal Investigation. 

"An arrest of any of our officers is treated very seriously.  This appears to be an isolated incident and should in no way hinder Detective Barrington's ability to complete his duties," said Assistant Chief Nicks.

Detective Barrington was assigned to administrative duties today.  He will return to his regular assignment with the Gang Enforcement Team on Monday.

Detective Barrington's photo is not available due to his role in an undercover capacity. 

Further inquiries will be directed to Washington State Patrol.
