Roseville police officer arrested, accused of making criminal threats

An off-duty Roseville police officer was arrested Tuesday night after police dispatchers received a call from a woman who said her husband had threatened great bodily harm and brandished a firearm.

Officers responded to the Roseville home at 11:27 p.m. to check on the family’s welfare. After an investigation, they arrested Officer Jude Michael Chabot, 30, on suspicion of making criminal threats and brandishing a firearm, according to a Police Department news release.

Police said no one in the home was physically assaulted or suffered physical injuries. Firearms were seized and a criminal investigation is under way, authorities said.

Chabot was booked at the Placer County Jail and has since been released on a $25,000 bail bond.

Police said a report will be forwarded to the Placer County District Attorney’s Office, which will make a determination on criminal charges to be filed. The department also will conduct an internal affairs investigation, and Chabot has been placed on paid administrative leave.
