Officer Seth Castillo Arrested Again for Drunk Driving

According to court documents, a Phoenix Police Officer that was arrested for drunk driving in Gilbert, has been arrested for DUI before.

FOX 10 has obtained court records that show officer Seth Castillo was arrested 8 years ago for driving while intoxicated, when he was 19 years of age.

Records show Castillo plead guilty to the charge back in 2002, well before he began working for the Phoenix Police Department.

Phoenix Police tell FOX 10 that a DUI arrest doesn't stop them from hiring an officer, and a DUI arrest for an officer on the force doesn't guarantee they'll be placed on administrative leave.

Officer Castillo is still patrolling city streets, just days after his latest DUI arrest.
