A Richmond police officer has been placed on administrative leave after being arrested in Alameda County in connection with a domestic violence incident.

Officer Thomas Hauschild, a six-year veteran of the department, was arrested Tuesday morning, said Richmond police spokeswoman Lt. Bisa French.

"Upon learning of his arrest and the allegations made against him, we immediately placed him on administrative leave pending the outcome of an internal investigation regarding his conduct," French said in a statement.

No charges have been filed against Hauschild, according to Teresa Drenick, a spokeswoman for the Alameda County District Attorney's Office. Information on the incident was not immediately available.

A call to the Alameda County Sheriff's Office was not immediately returned. Hauschild was released from Santa Rita Jail after posting a $60,000 bail.

"A charging decision has not been made and further investigation is being done by the Alameda County Sheriff," said Hauschild's attorney, Dirk Manoukian. "Officer Hauschild has initially and continues to cooperate with the investigation."
