Video shows arrest of Cincinnati Police captain accused of OVI

LOVELAND, Ohio (WKRC) - Loveland Police has released video from the arrest of a Cincinnati Police captain accused of driving under the influence.

The video is from Sunday morning when Loveland Police pulled over a suspected drunk driver. Inside, they found Cincinnati Police Cpt. Amanda Caton behind the wheel, and in the passenger seat was her husband Lt. Patrick Caton.

In the video, Patrick is heard arguing with the police officer, trying to convince him to let his wife go. Police arrested Amanda after she refused field sobriety and breathalyzer tests.

The police report shows Patrick became what they called "belligerent" with officers after they refused to let his wife go.

The dashcam also shows both Catons were carrying their service weapons, but police decided not to charge them for weapons violations even though it's illegal to possess a firearm while being under the influence.

Patrick has not been charged with a crime and a Cincinnati Police spokesman says he's is still on the job with CPD.

As for Amanda, her police powers are suspended while this case works its way through the court system.
