Darrell Ramon is accused of crashing a police truck and failing to report the incident.


The Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board opened cases against two local police officers at its June meeting.

The board has authority to suspend or revoke officers' professional licenses.

Guillermo Castro, an officer at the Pascua Yaqui Police Department for 10 years before he resigned in October, is accused of using police computers and databases to get information about people he saw visiting a woman's home, according to board records.

In a separate case, Darrell Ramon, a lieutenant at the Tohono O'odham Police Department before he resigned in December, is accused of crashing an unmarked police truck into a guardrail in December and failing to report the crash, according to board records.

A tow-truck driver said Ramon was extremely intoxicated, but Ramon denied he was drunk, according to board records.

The crash caused $7,400 in damage to the police truck, board records show.

Ramon had worked at the Tohono O'odham Police Department for 11 years.
