He was released the following day on $65,000 bail.Details of the alleged crimes were not immediately available.San Diego County sheriff’s officials said Knight has been placed on leave and relieved of his law-enforcement authority.The Sheriff’s Department was made aware of this investigation from the beginning and cooperated fully with the Riverside sheriff’s detectives,” San Diego sheriff’s officials said. “The sheriff’s department has no comment on Mr. Knights’ current arrest.”In 2014, Sheriff Bill Gore tried to fire Knight for using a banned chokehold on a handcuffed inmate in a county jail facility. Gore ultimately failed in his attempt to fire Knight for using improper force and for not reporting the incident because of a ruling by the County Civil Service Commision.The Commissioners ruled against Gore and allowed Deputy Knight to keep his job and also collect back-pay.It was a decision a San Diego Union-Tribune editorial board referred to as a “dereliction of duty” and that the commissioners forced the sheriff’s department to tolerate officer misconduct.As far as the child molestation arrest is concerned, the Sheriff’s Department released a statement that reads in part, “It is clear that Sheriff Gore felt that Mr. Knight should not be a sheriff’s deputy, and the sheriff’s department did everything possible to ensure that was in fact the case.”Knight is the second sheriff’s deputy to be arrested over the last month.On Feb. 22, Deputy Richard Fischer was arraigned in connection with 14 charges of sexual assault and sexual battery for crimes allegedly committed against women while he was on duty.
