Albany-- Yet another one of Albany's finest has been incarcerated-- this time for contempt of court, after he did not show up to testify against a man he arrested.

The order to arrest 30-year-old Patrolman David Sanchez was issued by Judge Willie Lockette. He was booked at the jail and then released.

Sanchez did not show up for the burglary trial of William Bruce Thursday.

Sanchez arrested Bruce for stealing scrap metal and was the principle witness in the case. Bruce was found not guilty.

An 18 month veteran of the department, Sanchez has placed on suspension without pay.

Sanchez is the second Albany Police officer arrested this week, and the seventh arrested in the last five months.
