PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland Police Bureau spokeswoman Lt. Kelli Sheffer says two Portland officers have been arrested for investigation of drunken driving.

She says Officer Joshua Sparks was stopped on the night of Nov. 6 by a Washington State Patrol trooper who clocked him at 72 mph in a 60 mph zone on Interstate 205 in Clark County, Wash.

On Sunday, Officer John Shadron was arrested by Gresham police after a collision with another vehicle. No one was injured.

The spokeswoman says the officers have been placed on desk duty pending the outcome of their cases and an internal review. Both men were off-duty when they were arrested.
