Alleged California 'Dirty DUI' Arrests Detailed

A Contra Costa County sheriff's deputy told two colleagues he was making "dirty DUI" arrests on behalf of a private investigator who was setting up men to damage their reputations in legal fights, an investigator said in court documents. Deputy Stephen Tanabe, 47, told a reserve sheriff's deputy on patrol with him the night of Jan. 14 that a drunken-driving arrest the two were making outside a Danville bar was a "setup" and that the target needed to be "dirtied" for a future court date, a sheriff's investigator wrote in a search warrant affidavit. Tanabe was working with a private investigator who had been hired by the target's wife for $5,000, the affidavit said. The deputy is suspected of receiving "financial benefits" for the arrest, the document said. Tanabe, an Alamo resident, was arrested Friday night on suspicion of drug and weapons crimes but has not been charged. He is free on $260,000 bail.

The cops in America are making people wonder just where such gross examples of a human are found....are these puss sucking look alike`s from some other planet.I would love to listen as one of Americas cops explains to his/her children about how the things Dad does to other humans is good,and how the devilish treatment of others will make the future of America better.

What kind of woman would marry one of these creepy,UN- American scum bags?

You know! Cops have a real bad reputation of Beating Their Wives.Maybe that explains why their wives marry them...they like being Beat.
