Officer goes on leave; target of investigation

A Sandy police officer is on paid leave while investigators review allegations that surfaced from a separate inquiry into a Clackamas County deputy, Sandy Police Chief Harold Skelton said Wednesday.

William Jacob Bergin, 27, who has been with the Sandy department since May 2005, has been on leave since July 25. Skelton would not comment on the allegations.

Deputy Brandon S. Claggett, 37, who was assigned to the Mount Hood area, has been on leave since July 9.

Bergin was arrested last year in Sherwood on suspicion of driving under the influence of intoxicants and entered a diversion program. He was on workers' compensation leave stemming from his involvement in the fatal police shooting of Fouad Kaady in 2005.
