SANTA FE, N.M. — A Santa Fe Police Department officer was arrested on a domestic violence charge over the weekend, just two days after the department instituted a "zero tolerance" policy toward such conduct violations.
Jon Lopez, 30, a three-year member of the department, could face losing his job while also dealing with charges of battery against a household member and interference with communications.
