A San Francisco sheriff’s lieutenant was arrested on domestic violence allegations at a city business in the Upper Market neighborhood last week, a police spokesman said.

Vincent Calvarese, 48, was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence, assault and false imprisonment in the 2300 block of Market Street (according to SF Weekly, the arrest occurred at the Gold’s Gym) last Thursday at 10:40 p.m., San Francisco police Officer Michael Andraychak said.

He was booked following the incident, Andraychak said.

Andraychak did not immediately know if the sheriff’s deputy had since been released from police custody.

Calvarese was profiled in a 2009 documentary “The Butch Factor” as a sheriff’s deputy in the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department. In a clip from “The Butch Factor,” Calvarese spoke about being an openly gay law enforcement officer who works with prison inmates.
