A former Fresno County Sheriff’s deputy who was arrested in May on domestic violence charges was rearrested Wednesday on charges of dissuading a witness, the Clovis Police Department reported.

Clovis police spokesman Jim Munro said the new charges were related to the May arrest.

David Raquenio was also booked on charges of violation of a domestic violence protective order, and violation of a stay-away order.

Raquenio was a 19-year veteran of the office.

Sheriff’s spokesman Tony Botti on Friday said that while the Clovis Police Department is leading the investigation, the sheriff’s office is also conducting an internal affairs investigation into Racquenio.

“David Raquenio is no longer an employee with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office,” Botti said in an email. “We are aware of his rearrest and continue to take appropriate action to deal with the matter.”
