Early Sunday morning, a Bellevue police officer was arrested after an allegation of a domestic violence assault.

The assault was alleged to have occurred about three weeks ago in the city of Bellevue. The officer was arrested for fourth-degree assault and booked into the King County jail.

The officer, a 16-year veteran of the department, has been placed on paid administrative leave while this allegation is investigated. The officer is not being named at this time, as he has not yet been charged with any crime.

The Bellevue Police Department has asked the King County Sheriff’s Office to take the lead on the criminal investigation to avoid any conflicts of interest and to ensure an unbiased and impartial investigation. The internal investigation will be handled by the department’s Office of Accountability.

The Reporter will update this story as more information is available.
