I am very sorry for the delay. I turned in for the evening right before your question came through at 11:30 PM. The law always considers the personal and criminal history of a defendant. With OWIs particularly, there is even a lookback period that specifically allows them to do so.

Arrests are a matter of public record. There is no duty of confidentiality that the police have. Theoretically, they can tell whoever they want. As a matter of department policy, reaching out to employers may be frowned on. You can report the officer who called you to his supervisor and to internal affairs to trigger an investigation into his professional conduct. If what he was doing was contrary to office policy, he could be sanctioned -- warned, fined, suspended or terminated from the force. If his contact with your employer does cause you to be terminated from your job before you're convicted of the present charges, you could contact a local civil lawyer about bringing a civil rights suit against the officer.
