Santa Clara Police Officer Arrested on Suspicion of Domestic Violence

Santa Clara city police arrested an off-duty officer Friday for allegedly assaulting a woman he was dating.

Around midnight, officers responded to a domestic-violence call and found Santa Clara City Police Officer Daniel Burde, 34, with his girlfriend, officials said. The woman apparently showed signs of physical harm, and Burde was booked into the Santa Clara County jail on suspicion of felony domestic violence.

Burde, who has been on the force for seven years, is now on paid leave until the department investigates the incident.
