Schwarzenegger's security guards slam cover-up reports

The Terminator star, who separated from wife Maria Shriver earlier this year (11), came clean last week (ends20May11) and confessed he'd fathered a lovechild with a housekeeper 13 years ago. The maid has been identified as long-time Schwarzenegger help Mildred Baena.

Recent reports suggest the former Governor's California Highway Patrol officers helped their boss hide his infidelities while on the job.

But retired CHP Sergeant Mark Hammond has slammed the claims, insisting Schwarzenegger was always professional throughout his seven years in employment.

He tells TMZ.com, "I can say without a shadow of a doubt as a supervisor of his protective detail that at no time did I see Governor Schwarzenegger say or do anything that could be deemed inappropriate.

"As a supervisor, if anything had occurred, I would have been notified, even if it was technically off the record on his private time."

Hammond's colleague, retired officer Manny Trevino, adds, "I never witnessed the Governor acting in a less than honorable manner."

Schwarzenegger's attorney Marty Singer has also dismissed the allegations, although he accepts his client "will take responsibility for his actions and deserves the public and media criticism".
