A Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputy was arrested Saturday afternoon for misdemeanor domestic violence after allegations came to light.

The case was then referred to the Bremerton Police Department for investigation.

Police booked the deputy into the Kitsap County Jail, but he will be held in a jail outside Kitsap County until a court appearance Monday.

The case was referred to the Kitsap County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

The sheriff’s office said the deputy voluntarily gave up all of their firearms, a county vehicle, their sheriff’s badge, and commission card and was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
