An alleged domestic violence incident at the Gold's Gym on Market Street concluded with police arresting a sworn sheriff's deputy, who was charged with assault and false imprisonment.
Lieutenant Vincent Calvarese was arrested Thursday evening at the 2301 Market Street gym. District Attorney spokeswoman Stephanie Ong Stillman categorized the incident as a domestic violence case. The purported victim was someone Calvarese “knew and had some sort of relationship with,” added Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Susan Fahey.
The District Attorney is slated to arraign Calvarese on Wednesday, a date that was moved up from Thursday. He was initially charged solely with assault but additional charges of assault with force to cause great bodily injury and false imprisonment were added on Monday. Calvarese has been placed on administrative duty while “the judicial process plays out,” says Fahey.
And while domestic violence charges resulted in Calvarese's former boss, Sheriff-in-Limbo Ross Mirkarimi, being removed from his job, that may not happen here.
