DENVER — A Denver Police Department (DPD) officer was arrested Saturday on multiple charges including domestic violence. DPD said he's been fired.
Daniel Caballero, 27, was taken into custody by the Aurora Police Department (APD) on suspicion of the following charges, DPD said Tuesday:
- Harassment - domestic violence
- Prohibited use of weapons
According to an arrest affidavit, Caballero was intoxicated and was seen pulling the hair of his girlfriend. That prompted an altercation between him and his girlfriend's brother.
Caballero then pulled out a handgun and pushed it into the abdomen of his girlfriend's brother, the affidavit says.
He was taken to the Aurora Municipal Jail and held on a no-bond hold.
Caballero joined DPD in 2021 and was assigned to the patrol division. He was still on probationary status following his hiring and was fired on Tuesday, according to DPD.
