Two Cleveland police officers were arrested for separate incidents over the weekend. 

The first arrest happened Friday after 29-year-old Tramaine Golston crashed while allegedly driving under the influence. 

Police say Golston was driving on State Route 176 at Spring Road when he crashed. Emergency crews responded and determined Golston was impaired. 

He was taken to Metro Health Medical Center for a knee injury and cited for OVI. 

Golston is assigned to the third district on basic patrol, but will be reassigned to restricted duty once he returns from sick leave, and pending the judgment decision on the criminal charges.

Then, on Saturday, Officer Matthew Sliter was arrested for domestic violence and violation of the state drug law after officers were called to his west side home where he lives with his girlfriend. After he was booked, police say they found suspected narcotics on him. 

Sliter's most recent assignment was to the fourth district, basic patrol. He was relieved from duty and will remain suspended without pay pending the judgment of the criminal charges.
