For the second time in less than a week a police officer from the Hudson Valley was arrested.

In August 2017, members of the Ulster County Sheriff's Office received a complaint about a domestic incident that allegedly involved Ulster County Sheriff's Office corrections lieutenant Chris Ferro.

Detectives and members of the District Attorney's Office conducted an extensive investigation, officials say.

On Tuesday around 9:30 a.m., Ferro, 49, of Hurley turned himself in and was charged with stalking and menacing. His surrender was pre-arranged with his attorney, police say.

Last Wednesday, Eric V. Decker, an off-duty Ulster County corrections officer, was charged with his second DWI in just over a month.
