Officer Brandon Singleton Arrested for Hit and Run

Des Moines police say a police officer has been arrested in a hit-and-run involving a squad car.

Police say Officer Brandon Singleton was arrested on Tuesday after an internal investigation that began with his request for a service truck to change a tire. Police say a supervisor noticed damage that was not consistent with Singleton's account of the incident.

Police say investigators determined Singleton had been involved in a hit-and-run. Police says marijuana and methamphetamine were found in the police car.

Singleton is charged with hitting an unoccupied vehicle and three drug charges. His case is not on the online court system, and it's unclear if he has an attorney.
