A Fresno County Sheriff’s Deputy was arrested again.

We’re learning David Raquenio is no longer with the department.

It’s his second arrest in less than three months.

The 2016 Top Cop Award recipient was first arrested in May at his home in Harlan Ranch for felony domestic violence.

On Wednesday afternoon, he was arrested again.

“For violation of a domestic violence restraining order and dissuading a witness, the victim,” said Sgt. Craig Aranas of the Clovis Police Department.

Clovis PD made both arrests. We’re told in July…

“Our investigation unit began to receive phone calls from the victim in regards to possible allegations of a domestic violence restraining order,” Sgt. Aranas explained.

Police say an investigation was launched that led to this week’s arrest.

We reached out to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office where Raquenio has worked since 2000, Spokesperson, Tony Botti said:

“David Raquenio is no longer an employee with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office. We are aware of his re-arrest and continue to take appropriate action to deal with the matter.”

The Sheriff’s Office is conducting an internal affairs investigation as well.

Just three years ago, Raquenio was honored for saving the life of a car crash victim.

His bail is set at $305,000.
